Student nurses campaigning for greater germ awareness in the library

It’s germ warfare. Two senior nursing students are putting their knowledge to use, fighting a campaign to convince their fellow students to maintain a healthier environment.

Fourth-year nursing majors Rana Allawnha and Meagan Sandhawalia have won approval from the Leddy Library for a quality improvement pilot project to promote germ awareness in the building.

“We spend a lot of time in the library,” Sandhawalia says. “We see what goes on, and it’s time for students to take ownership of their own study environment.”
