Nursing Scholarship Day highlights student research

Minot State University’s Department of Nursing is sponsoring its semiannual Nursing Scholarship Day on Dec. 11 in Ann Nicole Nelson Hall, starting at 8:30 a.m. Nursing students will showcase their research for fall semester. The event is free and open to the public.

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

The schedule is as follows:

  • 8:30-9 a.m. — S2 theory and research presentation: “Healthcare Barriers for College Students: A survey”
  • 9-9:30 a.m. — Poster presentations with hot cider and holiday goodies available
    • S1: “Geriatric Concept Maps”
    • S2: “Sentinel Events”
    • S3: “Mental Health Issues”
    • 9:30-10:30 a.m. — S4 population focused project: “MSU College Alcohol Risk Assessment and Policy Analysis”
    • 10:30-11:30 a.m. — S5 leadership and management presentation: “Organizational Change Project: Central Line Associated Infections”

As a holiday charitable activity, the nursing department is collecting twin-size pillows, pillowcases and twin-size sheet sets for families staying at Minot’s Domestic Violence Crisis Center. A collection tub will be placed in the hallway near the main nursing department office. All donations are due by Dec. 11 and will be delivered to DVCC at the end of the day.
