Loyola’s Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing Showcases Graduate Student Research
Day of Scholarship marks completion of master’s program
MAYWOOD, Ill. – Loyola University Chicago Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing held its annual Day of Scholarship on Friday, December 6, at the Health Sciences Campus. This event highlighted the scholarly work of Loyola’s Master of Science in Nursing students and celebrated the completion of their graduate coursework.
“The Day of Scholarship demonstrates the hard work and dedication of our graduate students,” said Vicki Keough, PhD, APRN-BC, ACNP, FAAN, dean, MNSON. “These graduates are now among the top 20 percent of nurses in the country. They are essential to the health of our nation.”
Master of Science in Nursing students are required to complete their comprehensive examination paper on a self-selected topic. Graduates then complete a presentation on their topic to other students, faculty members, and invited guests at the Day of Scholarship.
Thirty-three graduates presented their work at this fall semester’s event. Topics ranged from providing an evidence-based plan of care for binge drinking in young women to the implications of sleep on obesity.
During the recognition ceremony following the presentations, Dean Keough addressed the graduates, stressing their obligation to accomplish great things.
“Never has the nation needed you so greatly,” Dean Keough said. “Whether you make a difference at the bedside, in the lab, in management and imagination of new health-care systems or in the conduct of research or community and global health, I ask you to make a difference.”
