"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit." - Aristotle
This is the inspirational quote that the RN department has recently given to our students. This is our goal, to encourage our students to strive for excellence not only in their academic life but also in their professional and personal lives. The RN department has recently started giving "smartie" bags prior to big tests with an inspirational quote. These bags are filled with candy (including "smarties") and the chosen quote to encourage our students. This will continue to occur through all our courses prior to a "big test". Many thanks go to Valerie Pearce and Kristen Andrews for helping us stuff bags. We are looking forward to the next Advanced Med-Surg class starting on October 11, 2011. There will be many skills and additional information available to the students. Crystal Jensen and Jennifer Minor, RN instructors will be teaching skills labs on Mondays to our students. Thanks to the PN department for the use of the lab on Mondays. We are looking forward to a great and successful quarter.
