Welcome to the School of Nursing
STTI Upsilon Beta Chapter Annual Induction Ceremony and Poster Presentation
On Saturday, April 18, 2015, the Upsilon Beta Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society hosted their annual Induction Ceremony and Poster Presentation. 247 graduating students were invited, and graduate level students presented their capstone research posters. Pictured above, graduating EL-MSN student, and CSUF Kinesiology alumna Adriana Velez presented "A Program to Decrease Musculoskeletal Disorders and Promote Health in Nursing Students" based on her knowledge and expertise in both nursing and kinesiology. She produced a video and workbook that has the potential to inform the lifelong practices of nursing students in the principles of body mechanics and core strengthening as a means of inhibiting the musculoskeletal injuries that potentially undermine nursing careers. The Faculty in the SON Simulation Lab will incorporate Adriana's project into a learning module in the Fundamentals curriculum for entry level nursing students.
