Four nursing students attended the Ohio Nursing Students’ Association Convention on Oct. 26 and 27, at the Ohio State University.
The convention included NCLEX preparation and reviews, informational sessions on pharmacology and other topics and a panel of recent nursing graduates working in the field.
Attendees also elected the next year’s ONSA board, a group of students from various nursing programs in Ohio who serve in leadership roles for the statewide organization. Carson Applewhite ’13 was elected Community Health Director by her peers from across the state. In this position, she will work with other members of the board and the organization to organize community health projects in schools throughout the state.
The Ohio Nursing Students’ Association supports student nurses throughout the state of Ohio, to assume responsibility for contributing to nursing education in order to provide for the highest quality health care; to provide programs representative of fundamental and current professional interest and concerns; to aid in the development of the whole person, his/her professional role, and his/her responsibility for the health care of people in all walks of life; and to advocate for nursing students in preparing for their professional roles as nurses.
