SAN JOSÉ STATE UNIVERSITY School of Nursing – Graduate Newsletter Number 46 – Fall (June 2008) Providing excellence in nursing education through innovation and creativity to serve the needs of diverse communities. Graduate Coordinator Update There is nothing permanent except change SJSU SON Celebrates 50 Years Thank you to the graduate students, faculty, and staff for all of the support I received this semester as the Acting Graduate Coordinator. The role was often challenging and I learned a great deal. Dr. Connolly returned as the Graduate Coordinator for the School of Nursing as of June 1, 2008. Dr. Connolly is an excellent mentor and provided the guidance and support I needed to meet the demands of the Graduate Coordinator role. I am very fortunate to work with wonderful administrators, faculty, and students. Three students completed their projects and Orals presentations on May 14 th . The students represented the Administration, Educator, and FNP options. It’s always exciting to see the graduate students complete the program, and move into greater leadership positions in practice settings. A special thank you to the FNP program co-directors, Ms. Karen Ketner and Ms. Ruth Rosenblum, for their dedication in facilitating the FNP students toward the completion of the program as we prepare to place the FNP program “on the shelf” for a brief period of time. I also want to thank, Ms. Trudy Miller, our administrative assistant, who facilitates the registrations, placement letters, and contracts for the Special Sessions students. Trudy’s expertise in this area makes everything easier! Special Sessions graduate courses are being offered this summer (see the list of summer courses). The faculty are preparing for Fall 2008 regular and special sessions courses. Please refer to the list of courses for Academic Year 2008-2009 to assist you in your program planning. Remember, if you are enrolling in Nurs 295 this Fall, you must also enroll in Nurs 297.01 (Project Seminar = 1unit), which is scheduled on Wednesday afternoons, 1 hour prior to Nurs 295. If you have questions regarding course sequencing, please contact the graduate coordinator. The 2007-2008 Advanced Education in Nursing Traineeship funds were disbursed. The School of Nursing received a Nurse Traineeship grant for the 2008-2009 Academic Year. Please refer to the additional information in the newsletter to learn more about applying for the Nurse Traineeship grant awards. There are several resources on campus that assist students with a variety of needs. If you need assistance with writing assignments, the campus Writing Center (Clark Hall, Room 126, 408-924-2308, website: http://www.sjsu.edu/writingcenter )is there to help. Please contact them for an appointment if you need assistance with writing, formatting, etc. Fall 2008 classes will begin on Monday, August 25, 2008.
