FOND DU LAC, Wis. — The Marian University Student Nurses’ Association (MUSNA) has received a formal recognition of its dedication of giving back to the community.
A total of 19 nursing students from MUSNA attended the 63rd Annual Convention of the Wisconsin Student Nurses’ Association, held February 3 to 5 in Wisconsin Dells. The convention gave students an opportunity to network with other nursing students from around the state, participate in the business of the organization, speak with potential employers and attend educational focus sessions on a wide variety of nursing topics.
MUSNA received the convention’s award for Most Community Projects, an honor that Nancy Noble, associate professor in the School of Nursing and MUSNA co-advisor, says is well-deserved by her students.
“This award illustrates how active MUSNA is in comparison with the other nursing schools in the state,” Noble says. “MUSNA participates in many university and community service projects throughout the year and this award demonstrates that involvement and commitment to assist others. Community service is a core value of Marian University and a high priority of the nursing profession and MUSNA works hard to maintain its reputation for being an active and professional organization that strives to meet its goals and mission.”
