February 2011:

The School of Nursing's Nightingale Center for Nursing Scholarship (NCNS), coordinated by nursing professor Anne Bowen, PhD, exists to promote and support research. Through the NCNS and with Dr. Bowen's encouragement, the above-pictured "Research Group" was established as a research development and writing group that has been meeting weekly since August 2010. Their hard work in planning, writing, critiquing, and producing their research paid off tremendously this semester when they had six abstracts accepted for the annual meeting of the Society of Behavioral Medicine (the researchers will present their research at the meeting in Washington DC in April), and another abstract accepted for a poster presentation at the 11th National Conference on Cancer Nursing Research (Mary Anne Purtzer presented her research poster in Los Angeles, CA this February).
