Jean Gima and Marsha Sato's abstract, Award for Best Picture, was selected for a podium presentation at the American Association of Colleges of Nursing’s 2014 Master’s Education Conference to be held in Scottsdale, AZ in February. The focus of the conference is Master’s Nursing Education: Essential to the Future of Health Care. Their presentation discusses the use of technology in the classroom to enhance, integrate, and coordinate care through the use of iPads which the MSN program received through the Mount’s Title V Post-Baccalaureate grant. The students created a video using the iMovie function where they filmed their idea for an individualized or population-based program of care to improve health outcomes.
