N254 Hosts Alumni Panel

On April 16, the undergraduate course N254: The Discipline of Nursing brought SON alumni in to expose students to current trends, issues, and concepts that impact the entry into nursing practice today.

Michael Kirkman BSN ’17, Megan O’Connor BSN ’03, MSN ’13, DNP ’14, Lauren Parish BSN ’08, MSN ’15 and Rebecca Westerman BSN ’15 served as panelists and answered questions ranging from how to prepare for your first interview to the challenges of transitioning from school to practice, to the pros and cons of nurse residency programs.

Our thanks to these alumni for their service on the panel and sharing their valuable insights!

The purpose of the N254 course is to help students begin developing their own personal framework for nursing and all that it entails.
