Nursing students work to raise awareness of patient safety

With a theme of “For Everyone’s Protection, Prevent the Infection,” the School of Nursing engaged students and faculty in Patient Safety Awareness Week, January 21 to 25.

Students competed in a trivia game, mounted poster presentations on hygiene and germ control, and held a fashion show to display the latest in personal protective wear—everything from masks and gloves to gowns and eye shields.

The week of activities was the first organized by the Patient Safety Champions, along with instructors Michelle Freeman and Susan Dennison.
