SU Nursing Students Earn National Support For Resolution

SALSIBURY, MD---Work by Salisbury University’s Student Nurses Association could help change the way courts deal with child sex offenders.

During the 54th annual National Student Nurses Association (NSNA) convention recently held in Baltimore, a resolution  authored by graduating seniors, Holly Hayman and Erin Teates, and sponsored by the SU association called for mandatory minimum sentencing for child sex offenders. It was one of only 17 nationwide to gain support from the NSNA House of Delegates. The association’s national magazine, Imprint, featured SU’s resolution, among others, in its September/October edition.

At the convention, SU provided the most student volunteers of any school in Maryland. The Salisbury Nursing Department also sponsored the session “Pain Management 101” with presenter Margaret Mitchell, MS, RN, CNS, coordinator of SU’s Nursing Laboratory.

SU students made such an impression that several are featured on the promotional flier for the NSNA’s 55th convention next year in Anaheim, CA. They include seniors Kathleen Spadaro, Christina Pizzillo, Allison Holden, Chelsea Gebhardt, and Kerry Buschman.
