In recognition of National Midwifery Week (Sept. 30-Oct. 5), we want to commend our Certified Nurse Midwifes, who dedicate themselves to transforming women’s health care through education, research and clinical practice.
Creepy creatures, dangerous stigmas and deadly oversights were part of CU Nursing’s premiere student poster presentation last week. Two dozen students highlighted their work, bringing the Education 2 Bridge to life with scholarly discussions and 75-plus attendees. Check out a snapshot of the research on display.
Dreams achieved and growing. CU Nursing alumna Marnie McKercher, Aurora Public Schools’ Lead School Nurse Consultant, decided that CU’s dual degree was the perfect program to expand her nursing education while also working with other public health professionals through the MPH. Read how she pursued her advanced DNP/MPH degree.
Our faculty members mentored two Lakota high school students focused on health sciences careers this summer. The young women hope to harness college educations in improving living conditions on their Pine Ridge Reservation someday.
