Radiology delays, medication errors, breastfeeding education – these were just a few of the issues examined by Mount St. Mary’s nursing students as part of the 2013 Graduate Nursing Research Poster Symposium.
The December symposium showcased the most recent research of the College’s Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) students. More than 100 guests attended the event at the Mount’s Doheny Campus near downtown Los Angeles, including medical colleagues, nursing professionals, faculty and fellow students.
Eleven MSN students presented their research and recommendations this year. Guests had the chance to read posters prepared by each student, and to discuss their findings.
Dr. Marsha Sato, director of the MSN program, and associate professor Dr. Tori Canillas-Dufau coordinated the event. Held annually, the Graduate Nursing Research Poster Symposium facilitates the discussion of student-identified issues and spotlights possible solutions relevant to the profession. The event also provides an important networking opportunity for students, faculty, community partners and nursing organizations.
The Mount’s 2013 symposium research-presenters included: Denise Breheny, Terrevia Buck, Joselito Castro, Lydia Ifejeokwu, Kimberly Marin, Viola Mena, Esther Odeh, Lorina Punsalang, Paola Rodriguez, Roxanne Romuroso and Rochelle Vasco.
