On Saturday, April 5th, three VSU students in our Accelerated BSN program and Dr. Rebecca Green had the privilege of attending the Robert Wood Johnson New Careers in Nursing Scholars Conference in Birmingham Alabama. Mesiah Porter, Ashlin Allen, and Derek Duran were able to meet other Accelerated BSN students from across the southeast and network with nursing leaders from all over the region. Our students attended conference sessions that included the following topics:

  • Leadership in Nursing
  • Securing a Nursing Position in a Constrained Job Market
  • Implementation of the Affordable Care Act and Its Impact on Nursing Practice
  • Doctoral Advancement in Nursing

 A great time was had by all! The trip was made possible by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and VSU's School of Nursing.
