2 Message from the Chair I am pleased to share with you the University of North Carolina at Pembroke s Department of Nursing spring/summer 2014 edition of our e-newsletter, Nursing Notes. In this e-newsletter, you will have the opportunity to learn of the many exciting accomplishments of our nursing faculty, students, and alumni. What an exciting time it is for the Department of Nursing! The Department of Nursing has an outstanding baccalaureate program. Recent statistics from the North Carolina Board of Nursing, indicated that graduates of the pre-licensure BSN program achieved a 3-year average NCLEX-RN pass rate of 99%; the highest among baccalaureate nursing programs in the state. Graduates of the program readily secure employment in a variety of health care settings in the region, state and across the nation. Our RN-BSN program continues to grow and provides seamless opportunities for diploma and associate degree nurses to earn a baccalaureate degree through six RN-BSN bridge programs with area community colleges. In fall 2013, we opened our Master of Science (MSN) degree program with our first cohort of 19 students. Students enrolled in the master s of science degree in nursing may specialize as either a Nurse Educator, Clinical Nurse Leader, or Rural Case Manager. The MSN program is accessible to nurses with a BSN and RNs with a diplomas or associate s degree. The nursing faculty continues to excel in teaching, scholarship, and service. In this edition of Nursing Notes, many of those accomplishments are highlighted. The faculty continues to exemplify their commitment to our vision of achieving regional distinction as a leader of excellence in our nursing educational programs and in scholarship, service, and community engagement. As you read the stories in this issue of the e-newsletter, I encourage you to share your story with us. We are interested in hearing about your personal and professional accomplishments and want to recognize you for those achievements. As alumni, friends, students, and faculty, you are key our success as a Department of Nursing! Enjoy the spring/summer 2014 edition of Nursing Notes Barbara B.

10 Nursing Raises Over $12,000 for Relay for Life! The department of nursing crushed it s $10,000 goal for the 2014 UNCP Relay for life campaign. This year, nursing faculty, staff, nursing/pre-nursing students joined forces to finish the fight and celebrate each life, raising $12, of the $23, raised for this year s event. The nursing team was awarded for outstanding service and received the highest overall and event fundraising awards. Service Throughout the campaign faculty and students alike modeled great enthusiasm through personal donations and participation in fundraising events (Polar Plunge, yard sale, pie in face). The team raffled a set of 31 bags (donated by junior Shannon Merwin), a hand-knitted shawl (donated by nursing alumni Victoria Graham) and two handmade corn hole game sets (made and donated by senior nursing student and cancer survivor, Charles Kurtz). It was a true team effort that encouraged students and faculty to work together as a team to achieve a common goal. GO TEAM!!!! Be the Match Donor Drive During the 2014 Relay for Life event, UNCP nursing faculty and students cosponsored a Be the Match donor drive, collecting cheek swabs of 43 potential stem cell donors. Be the Match is operated by the National Marrow Donor Program and has managed the largest and most diverse marrow registry in the world (www.bethematch.org). A stem cell transplant is used to treat many life-threatening blood cancers, such as leukemia and lymphoma. Pictured above is rising senior nursing student, Casey Horne, obtaining a cheek sample for the registry. Nursing faculty member, Jennifer Twaddell (bottom left), was a true sport and demonstrated awesome team spirit during Relay for Life by voluntarily taking a few pies in the face, complements of our current nursing students, as one of our fundraising efforts. Team members, Martha Hepler, Jennifer Johnson (bottom right) and Justin Smith chose to take a Polar Plunge for pledges. Those pies were sticky and the water was cold, but it was all so very much worth the time and effort that went into such a successful team effort.
11 Service Nursing Students Promote Health During the 2014 Family Day Events Junior nursing students enrolled in NUR 3500 (Family Nursing II) during Spring 2014 provided health promotion information to students and family members who participated in the 2014 UNCP Family Day event. Information regarding healthy nutrition and body weight, growth and developmental milestones with anticipatory guidance and sun safety were provided. These health promotion activities supported a few goals as set forth by Healthy People 2020 including to: 1) promote health and reduce chronic disease risk through the consumption of healthful diets and achievement and maintenance of healthy body weights, 2) improve the health and well-being of women, infants, children and families, and to 3) reduce the number of new cases of cancer, as well as the illness, disability and death caused by cancer. Healthy People provides science-based, 10-year national objectives to fulfill its vision of a society in which all people live long, healthy lives. Recognized for Service Dr. Barbara Synowiez, Chair, Department of Nursing, and Mrs. Martha Hepler, Director, Clinical Learning Center, were both recognized in February 2014 at a special luncheon hosted by UNCP s Chancellor Kyle Carter and Provost Ken Kitts. The purpose of this luncheon was to acknowledge select faculty who have distinguished themselves through extraordinary contributions to the life of the University and to the success of their students outside of the classroom. Dr. Synowiez recommended Mrs. Hepler for recognition to the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Dr. Mark Canada, who designated them both for inclusion in this year s groups of honorees. Mentors Advancing for Distinction and Empowerment (M.A.D.E.) is a student organization here on the UNCP campus whose purpose is to assist with academic development for students and to develop leadership programs to encourage high levels of student engagement. Though they target the entire student body, their focus is on incoming minorities to assist them to become acclimated to and integrated into UNCP, both academically and socially. This spring, they sponsored a day-long mentoring event for a group of 40 children (and their faculty) in grades 3-5 with hopes to stimulate or enhance their excitement about going to college. They toured various facilities across campus, with their last stop being the Clinical Learning Center (CLC). Students were able to ask questions about being a nurse and were given the opportunity to interact with our high-fidelity simulators and various models housed within the CLC. Their visit was interactive and exciting, and the kids really enjoyed their time here within the department of nursing. A special thanks to Dr. Tiffany Tyson for assisting the CLC staff in making this opportunity possible for this group of kids.
