BS Nursing 2017 Research Engagement

Many would agree that the benefit of undergraduate students embarking on research is the early exposure to scholarly papers, the gained understanding and appreciation of published works. They also learn how to seriously balance collaborative and individual effort. As future professionals, the students’ research experience help enhance critical work behavior traits such as persistence, resourcefulness and confidence.

SISC College of Nursing’s BSN curriculum includes a total of 8 didactic units related to introduction to research, research writing and statistics. An additional 9 hours per week of unstructured but guided learning is integrated in the semesters for the completion of their chosen study.

After the students have undertaken the rigors of defending their thesis and earning final approval, they are required to publicly present their thesis in the form a research poster. For this academic year four extremely varied but interesting research studies configured into the College’s Research Poster Presentation and will be judged on the areas of content, relevance, poster appearance/clarity and organization. These are:

• Effects of Mandala Art Therapy in The Cognitive Behavior of Geriatric Residents in a Local Nursing Home,
• A Comparative Study on the Adherence to Standards at the Dispensing Point of Medication Administration among Nurses of Varied Years of Practice,
• Correlates of Moral Integrity among Fourth Year Students of SISC, and
• A Correlational Study on the Quality of Sleep and Personality Traits of Hospital Nurses

The posters will be on display from January 23-30, 2017 at the SISC College Lobby. -CAV
