The SON Celebrates 2014 Honors Students

On Thursday, April 17, SON students, staff, and faculty enjoyed poster presentations featuring projects completed by undergraduate researchers and Sigma Theta Tau research scholars. Of those who presented, 7 BSN students were awarded Highest Honors and 17 were awarded Honors.

The research topics this year ranged from examining intersections between culture and health care to studying specific interventions that could improve patients’ health. Other studies were aimed at creating better educational tools for healthcare providers

Diverse research interests were reflected in the posters. Some students chose to focus on specific patient populations, such as department of corrections patients or athletes, while others chose to develop new tools for improving nurse education, such as resources for nurses to learn about human trafficking or on-the-job instructional modules for new nurses.

During the event, 18 students received gold cords from Associate Dean Gwen Sherwood, Phd, RN, FAAN to signify that they will graduate with Honors. Four of those students received Highest Honors. Scroll down for the full list of Honors recipients as well as more pictures from the event.

Congratulations to all of our outstanding student researchers!
