Our 18th annual Capstones of Nursing Research on Thur, May 3rd was a great success. Our Keynote Speaker, Marcia Beck, alum from 1977 and past president of Truman Nursing Honor Society, presented on her research and work related to lymphedema management at the national level.
"Take-aways" (easy to remember) were PEP (Put Evidence into Practice) and Look4LE "app" (look for a lymphedema therapist).
At our luncheon & annual meeting, next year's slate of officers was approved, and one lucky senior won the cardiology style stethoscope (courtesy of the Nursing Dept.)
Twelve seniors presented their capstone research from the podium, and eleven presented their research as posters. In addition, breakout sessions included presentations by Shelby Leppin, Kendra Jones, and Sam White. Sarah Delaware displayed a poster about the new SIGMA brand/logo.
Many underclass students were in the audience and learned that they, too, would be presenting next year, and that invitations for Sigma membership would be arriving for many during the summer.
