And welcome to October, and to the ACEN BSN visit week, and anticipation of the ACEN MSN visit next week…and to warm and sunny days, and October blue skies, one of Nebraska’s most beautiful sights….
Points of Pride
In the last ten days….
- We honored students for academic achievement, those on the President’s List and the Dean’s List. Students were proud, and relieved, and mostly humble about their accomplishments. Parents were VERY proud, and rightly so. There were also grandparents, siblings, spouses, children, and other family members in attendance. A happy occasion, with lots of smiles all around.
- The capping ceremony for students midway through their BSN program recognizes the symbols and ceremony that are a part of the profession. Many touching moments as students were capped by faculty members and pinned by family members.
- The College hosted the state HOSA (clubs of high school students interested in health careers) conference, attending by more than 100 students from all across Nebraska. They had a daylong experience in our facility and in the medical center, experiencing first hand many options within health care. I know it came at a challenging time, with the final preparations for ACEN at the same time, so thanks to all of you for making it work – one team, one purpose never looked so good!
- The career fair was attended by many employers in Lincoln and throughout Nebraska; they once again reported this is an outstanding event, and they really like talking with our students. An excellent affirmation of everyone’s work….
- We received the written report of the external visitation team for the cardiac/vascular sonography program – just as positive as their oral exit report!
And all of these are part of the melody, which we live, and own...
To Think About...
“Through all the tumult and the strife
I hear the music ringing;
It sounds an echo in my soul
How can I keep from singing?”
Sung by Pete Seeger, composer uncertain
