Nursing Scholarship Day slated for May 9 at Minot State

The Minot State University Department of Nursing sponsored its Nursing Scholarship Day May 9 in Ann Nicole Nelson Hall. The event, which was free and open to the public, highlighted work nursing students have completed during this semester.

“Nursing Scholarship Day is an opportunity to showcase what our students are working on throughout their coursework,” said Nicole Medalen, assistant professor of nursing. “We are so proud of their accomplishments and contributions to nursing care, and we want to share their effort with the public.”

The presentations were:

  • 8:30-9 a.m. — “A Study of Student Nurses Stress and Coping,” a presentation by Nursing 363 Nursing Theory and Research class (S2)
  • 9-10 a.m. — “Case Studies of Individuals with a Mental Health Condition,” the theme for poster presentations by Nursing 354 Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing (S3)

  • 11-11:30 a.m. — “Plan for Intentional Change within an Agency: Alarm Fatigue,” a presentation by Nursing 473 Nursing Leadership and Management

“We want students to know that research doesn’t have to be overwhelming and complicated, but rather validating and expanding their understanding of practice,” Medalen said.
