GivingTuesday at the CNS - Dec 3rd, 2019
Today, the Centre for Nursing Studies (CNS) faculty, staff, and students, along with other Eastern Health employees at Southcott Hall, participated in GivingTuesday, a national movement dedicated to giving back.
GivingTuesday kicks off the giving season and encourages people all over the world to support charities and non-profit groups. The CNS event organizers encouraged the donation of hats, mittens, scarves, socks and personal hygiene items to put around a tree, called the Giving Tree.
The donations for GivingTuesday received at the CNS and Southcott Hall will be donated to various local charities.
Thank you to all CNS faculty, staff and students and Eastern Health employees who participated in this awesome giving movement!
CNS Students Volunteer for Influenza Immunization Clinic 2019
Approximately 50 year 4 BN students have volunteered to assist with influenza immunizations during October, November and December.
Students have been working with Community Health, Occupational Health, MUN Student Wellness and Counselling Centre, and Health and Wellness at College of the North Atlantic.
This experience is not only a great learning opportunity for our BN students but a tremendous help to our partners at EH, MUN, and CNA.

CAPNE Innovation in Practical Nursing Education - Team Award
Three CNS faculty members, Glenda Manning, Denise Miller and Kim Lawson, were recognized on October 24 at the Canadian Association of Practical Nurse Educators (CAPNE) Conference in Winnipeg by being nominated for and awarded the CAPNE Innovation in Practical Nursing Education - Team Award.
The award recognizes the innovative and interactive educational activity that was developed and facilitated for Practical Nursing Program students at the CNS in March 2019.
The purpose of the activity was to integrate concepts learned in Health Assessment and Mental Health theory courses with the intent of promoting critical thinking and enhancing client care in caring for clients experiencing substance misuse.
Congratulations to Glenda, Denise and Kim for this outstanding achievement! It is excellent to see innovative and scholarly teaching recognized in this way.
