Jan, Lori and Leslie

...for presenting their poster at the 9th Annual Nurse Educator Conference at Oklahoma City University Kramer School of Nursing (KSN)
They said the conference was great and here are some highlights:
1. Review of many teaching strategies. During the presentation we used the hands on activities.
2. Lots of positive feedback on poster presentation. Presenter encouraged us to continue to move forward with our strategy.
3. KSN support decreasing student anxiety through the use of two therapy dogs that are present in the classroom and lab settings. The dogs are turned loose in the classroom and lab to have on the spot stress reduction as needed. Students can come to the nursing office and checking out the dogs to play.
4. The KSN has a new building with spacious labs and classroom settings. This is a very student friendly setting.
Thank you for representing TCC Nursing so well.
