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.
CSUF Student Health Fair
Student nurses in N402L Community Health Nursing apply community health theory with individuals, families, and communities. During the CSUF Health Fair, they conducted interactive educational displays that included games and appetizing Ceviche taste-testing samples for health topics entitled Ohhh, My Tapas: A Guide to Eating Healthy Snacks, Hand-washing Hygiene Clinic, and Rethink your Drink. Participation in this enjoyable public health nursing activity contributed to the promotion of good health among hundreds of CSUF campus students.
Students and Faculty Join Donate Life 5k Run/Walk Event
On Saturday, April 25, 2015, several CSUF School of Nursing students and faculty joined the Donate Life organization in doing a 5k run/walk event. The event was held at the Fullerton campus which drew a large crown from the community to bring awareness in being an organ donor. The 5k had many teams that walked in memory of a loved one who had been an organ donor. The CSUF SON students and faculty ran/walked in memory of faculty, Sandra James' niece, Sharayah James who was in a fatal car accident at age 20 and was an organ donor. The students were excited to show support and after the walk were frantically searching the display booths for the next 5k to be a part of. Come join us on our next 5k to show the community how much we actively care about others and health.
