Nursing Praxis Summer 2014 e-Newsletter

Dean Lorie Wild
A Word From Dean Lorie Wild
This year we are honored to launch into new or continuing practice: 48 prelicensure BSNs; 24 RN-to-BSNs from Group Health, Valley Medical Center, and other area medical centers; and 22 graduate program students (19 MSN graduates and three earning post-master’s Nurse Practitioner certificates). All worked hard to reach their goals and will continue a long tradition of SPU nurses making a difference in our world.
2014 Pinning Ceremony
Nursing Alumni Grow by 48: Highlights From the 2014 Pinning Ceremony
There is always a buzz of excitement toward the end of Spring Quarter, which culminates with the Pre-Licensure Pinning Ceremony, a time-honored nursing school tradition tailored specifically to the personality of the graduating class.
Hooding Ceremony
Graduate Hooding Celebrates Achievements
SHS graduates and faculty gathered for a reception and hooding ceremony to celebrate the MSN Class of 2014 in conjunction with the first Graduate Commencement ceremony held on SPU’s campus.
Community Health Projects Engage the Culture and Change the World
Fulfilling SPU’s vision is not only something SHS prepares students to do after graduation; it is actively pursued throughout the program. Nursing students are given a unique opportunity during their training to engage with patients both in clinical settings and community health service projects.
Glassybaby Funds Nursing Scholarship
Seattle-based Glassybaby, makers of beautiful and popular hand-blown glass candleholders, have partnered with SPU to establish a nursing scholarship. Founder and cancer survivor Lee Rhodes operates her business with a philanthropic mindset and has a heart for health care providers, particularly nurses.
