MUSNA receives state awardFOND DU LAC, Wis. - Seventeen nursing students from Marian University represented the Marian University Student Nurses' Association (MUSNA) at the 65th Annual Convention of the Wisconsin Student Nurses' Association (WSNA) held February 7 - 9 in Wisconsin Dells.

While attending the convention, MUSNA received the Most Community Projects award, which is given to a chapter who is actively involved in serving their community and promote the mission of the nursing profession.

"This award illustrates how active MUSNA is in comparison with the other nursing organizations in the state," says Nancy Noble, associate professor of nursing at Marian and MUSNA co-advisor. "MUSNA participates in many University and community service projects throughout the year and this award demonstrates the involvement and commitment to service."

In addition to receiving this award, Kate Kwiesielewicz, from Merrill, Wis., was elected to serve on the 2014 - 2015 WSNA Board of Directors.

The convention also gave students an opportunity to network with other nursing students from around the state, participate in the business of the organization, to speak with potential employers and attend educational workshops on a wide variety of nursing topics.
