June 13, 2014 - Congratulations to third year BScN student Hannah Sweilem, a Patient Safety Champion, who has been accepted to attend the IHI Open School Student Quality Leadership Academy in Cambridge, MA. This is the 5th Annual Student Quality Leadership Academy, which is a free, two-day interdisciplinary program for students, residents, and graduate trainees designed to build leadership competencies within future health professionals. This is a competitive process and students are required to submit an application. Hannah's application received the following feedback: "Your enthusiasm and interest in leadership made you a stand-out candidate."
This is the second University of Windsor nursing student invited to attend this Academy. Padma Ravi, another Patient Safety Champion and current 3rd year BScN student, was accepted to attend in 2012, and has been invited to return this year and also attend the I-CAN conference that takes place prior to the Leadership Academy.
A great accomplishment for our students and the University of Windsor!
