Student Spotlight

Written by: on September 4, 2019 @ 9:25 pm

This column will focus on Cuyahoga and Geauga County students who are making a difference on campus and in the community. This inaugural column features a team of leaders at CSU-SNA. Taylor Novak-Freier, President and Miranda Wood, Vice President, met with the GCNA BOD on August 8th to discuss their organizational changes, goals, and how to best interface with GCNA.

Efforts are underway to become a National Student Nurses Association constituent. This year Dean Gaspar pledged 50% support for 10 students from CSU -SNA to become national members. These student nurse leaders project a stronger presence on campus and will continue community involvement. Current volunteer efforts include work at the Cleveland Food Bank, MedWish, and Ronald McDonald House. Monthly, ongoing health fairs and clinics are held at John Glenn Smith Health Center, Project HOPE St. Clair, and Parma Senior Center.

CSU-SNA invites GCNA participation at volunteering and career enrichment events this academic year. GCNA will post a calendar of community events so members can choose how and when to participate.

Is it time to reinvent the mentoring program? YES – especially with student initiation and interest. CSU senior nursing students will be identifying their intensive study clinical rotations and would like to pair with nurses who have similar clinical practice, current or retired. The ultimate goal is to help students become involved, educated nurses and members of our professional organizations.

Call, text or email GCNA if you are interested in being a mentor to a senior nursing student!

Margaret Wheatley Member Scholarship for First Year in GCNA-ONA-ANA

Margaret Wheatley, PhD, RN was the first African American to serve as ONA President (1993-97) and had a passion for nursing research and education in mental health and aging.  In her memory and namesake, the 5th Annual “Margaret Wheatley New Member Scholarship” will provide full ANA/ONA/ GCNA dues in 2020.  

The scholarship is designed to enhance the first year of membership with opportunities for engagement and involvement. GCNA is looking for a next generation leader with ideas that will have a positive impact on nurses and the healthcare community in Cuyahoga and Geauga Counties.       

Is there a catch? Of course! In addition to being mentored by a GCNA member, the awardee will develop a project that exemplifies the GCNA vision and mission and see it to completion during 2020. Past projects include engaging new members through social networking and social outreach events, educating the nursing community in Greater Cleveland, and representing the interest of nurses in this area through participation in community service events. Do you know a Registered Nurse looking to make a difference in nursing in the Greater Cleveland area? If so, encourage this colleague to submit the application by October 31, 2019.

For information or to apply, contact GCNA at: gcna@clevelandnurse.org or (216) 771-6922.

Let’s see who accepts the challenge to make possibilities real!
