Advanced Practice Nursing Students in Residency Workshop

Recently, students in the Master of Science in Nursing and Post Master’s Certificate Advanced Practice Nurse program gathered in the Nursing Resource and Simulation Center on the Lodi campus for an all-day residency workshop presented by Dr. Theresa Campo, Assistant Professor in the Department of Graduate Nursing.

Dr. Muriel M. Shore, Dean and Professor in the School of Nursing, provided opening remarks, and, with Dr. Margaret Daingerfield, Associate Dean, welcomed the APN students to campus.

“Our APN curriculum is primarily delivered online through the eCollege platform, so the on-campus residency experience is a wonderful opportunity for our students to gather together, socialize and work with the faculty one-on-one”, said Dr. Daingerfield.

The residency workshop, part of NURS 570/1 Primary Health Care III, included valuable information on wound management and radiologic testing and interpretation. During the event, Drs. Campo, Kathleen Bradbury-Golas, Catherine Jennings and Kathleen Fagan, Nurse Practitioner faculty in the Department, guided students in hands-on practice sessions in safe and effective wound care, including return demonstration of suturing techniques and incision and drainage of abscesses.

Acquisition of knowledge and skills in these areas is essential to the preparation of competent nurse practitioners and the provision of high quality primary care.
