Yun Michelle, Graduate of Wound Ostomy Continence Nursing Education Program

Michelle Yun, a graduate of the Rutgers University–Camden Wound Ostomy Continence Nursing Education Program, has received a scholarship from the Northeast Region Wound Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society.

A wound care nurse at Robert Wood Johnson-Somerset and at the Jersey City Medical Center, Yun plans to use the $1,000 scholarship to further her education and eventually pursue a doctor of nursing practice degree.

“My teammates and I were able to use sports as a platform for positive change,” says Aubrey Andrews, a Rutgers School of Nursing—Camden senior who graduates on May 18 with a bachelor of science in nursing degree. Andrews –inspired by the actions of the U.S.

1st Lt. Jennifer Wain is currently a junior nursing student at the university and works in the Veterans Services Office on campus as the vice president of Student Veterans. With a prior degree in biology, she has always found research enthralling, and it is what continues to drive her passion for nursing today.

Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden faculty members Katherine Prihoda and Kathleen Jackson, both assistant professors in the school, and Project H.O.P.E., the school’s new faculty-practice partner, have been named 2017 recipients of the Chancellor’s Awards for Civic Engagement. Every day, Rutgers University–Camden students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community partners work to advance well-being for the people of southern New Jersey and the region.

We congratulate Nancy Pontes, an assistant professor at Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden, on her induction as a Fellow of the National Academies of Practice (NAP), an interprofessional, national organization that advises governmental bodies on health care delivery in the United States.

As medical professionals on the frontlines of health care, nurses must remain calm, level-headed, and prepared for anything that may arise in order to administer safe and proper care to their patients. In many ways, those qualities are a lot like what is required of someone in the military, who must rely on his or her training and instincts in a given situation.
