Nursing student wins scholarship for work with elderly

A UWindsor master’s student—and sessional instructor—in nursing has received an award for her career development in the field of care for older adults.

The Canadian Gerontological Nursing Association awarded its $2,000 Anne C. Beckingham Scholarship to Fran Meloche. Members of the adjudication committee noted they were particularly impressed with the quality and thought incorporated in her application.

Meloche’s thesis is an ethnographic study of how positive precepted clinical placements are fostered among pre-graduate nursing students in long-term care homes.
