The School of Health Studies’ Nursing and Psychiatric Nursing programs recognize the important role that clinical partners play in student learning and thank them for the continued professional working relationship with nurses, health care professionals and facilities.

This past year, 49 nurses who contributed greatly to student clinical experiences were nominated by students in the Department of Nursing. A personal thank you letter was sent to each nurse and their names were entered into a draw for $350. The lucky winner was Karleigh Bandor from the Brandon Regional Health Centre. Congratulations Karleigh!

In the Psychiatric Nursing Department, 131 health care professionals acted as Preceptors in 2010. Each received a personal thank you letter from the Dean and a Department of Psychiatric Nursing pen. Their names were entered into a draw for $350 and the lucky winner was Curtis Sookram from PsycHealth at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg. Congratulations Curtis!

The School of Health Studies acknowledges and recognizes these individuals for the exceptional learning environment provided through their leadership. They are truly “Champions of Student Learning” and we look forward to their continued support!
