To engage community partners this student plans to set up initial meetings with each identified community resource and introduce the proposed program. During these meetings it will be discussed how the program
As of today, I demonstrate the idea that young minds are valuable through my HPAC group. I created this group not only from personal experiences, but also learning that my experiences were all too common. Finding out that my own school district had the highest suicide attempt rate in America was heartbreaking. I knew that there was something to be done to alleviate this. This pushed me into creating Helping Our Peers Excel (H.O.P.E.).
A program that is oriented around illuminating the complex problems that surround our world on a daily basis really connects to what I hope to receive in my college experience. This program incorporates progressive ways of teaching principal
As a first year student, I quickly found my niche by joining an on-campus student leadership group called the Programming and Activities Board (PAB). PAB was a student leadership group that worked on establishing community on campus by planning and coordinating on-campus student events. It was here that I had the opportunity to work and interact with the student affairs office and really understand how building community and developing a student’s leadership ability can really transform a student
As a student, I’ll join a community that shares my educational ambition and thirst for knowledge. Much of my high school career, from Science Olympiad to peer tutoring, has already prepared me for the Swarthmore idea of collaboration, not competition that seems to pervade campus culture. Through
Beating at the heart of the Southern Oregon Honors College community lies a close-knit community that focuses on deeper discussions between students and a student-interest driven content with programs like Take the Lead Projects and Pick and Choose Activities. Small communities, like the honors college, have been a major part of my life since middle school. This is one of the major reasons why I want to be a part of the honors college community. I want to immerse myself in an intellectual space where people take responsibility for their actions and communicate with others in an honest, compassionate way while in a small-scale setting. I think a lot of successful communities do this. When members are comfortable being open about what they want from their community and communicate that in an empathetic way, a deeper bond is created and people can delve into their creativity more because they do not fear judgment.
Dee Hock once said, “An organization no matter how well designed, is only as good as the people who live and work in it.” Hock’s words are the epitome of how a successful organization functions, as without the people an organization is nothing much like leadership. For the CLIP project we chose to analyze and participate in the University Program Board (UPB) because it is one of the most well known and most active organizations on campus. UPB, first began in 1953 as a student volunteer organization and has since evolved to the organization it is today. The board has gone through many forms and name changes, adjusting to the present needs of students to offer the best in entertainment. UPB is comprised of one full-time staff advisor,
In my role as a peer advisor, I feel I have made MCLA students feel welcomed during the first days program and the first semester in my first year seminar course. As a peer advisor, I have made the transition easier for incoming freshmen and transfers by being a resource, but most importantly being a friendly face. This role made me proud to be an upper classman at this college where I know that faculty and staff can depend on me and also where students can feel comfortable asking me questions and for advice. Going into my senior year, I was given the position of senior peer advisor which expanded my role from just helping the experience of incoming students, but also to the peer advising staff. I assisted in their training over the course
On the Pre-Health Conference web page, it shows the various ways the conference can aid students looking into health careers by providing keynote speakers, panels of deans of admissions, financial aid officers, staff from health professions schools, and hands on
According to Hall and Ross-Kerr (2006) teaching is an interactive process that promotes learning. Generally, teaching and learning begin when a person identifies a need for knowing or acquiring an ability to do something. A nurse, who embodies the role of a teacher provides information that prompts the client to engage in activities that lead to desired change. Teaching is most effective when it responds to the learner’s needs (Potter, Perry, Ross-Kerry, & Wood, 2006, p. 318). In this paper I will include an assessment of the learner, teacher, and resources with a teaching plan. I will provide evidence of implementation along with discussion of teaching material used in the presentation, including the rationale for its use. The paper will
Life is full of wonderful and unique opportunities that each individual experiences. Many people said that academic success is one of the best ways to achieve a great future, but I also agree that taking the chance to learn from a different perspective other than the classroom can enhance the intelligent of a person. Since I was little, learning was something I was always passionate about. On the other hand, meeting new friends was never an act I enjoyed because I was too scared that others wouldn’t like me. When I became a member of HOSA: Future Health Professional, my life changed dramatically as I got the chance to explore who I am as a person, a friend, a future health professional, and most importantly, a leader.
A nurse, who embodies the role of a teacher, can provide information which prompts the client to engage in activities that lead to a desired change. “Teaching is most effective when it responds to the learner’s needs” (Potter et al, 2006, p. 318). This project will reduce demand in Emergency Rooms and move ALC patients who are ready to be transferred out to alternate care streams to the right care at the right place and at the right time. Finally, I will discuss the personal growth and development which will help me for improvement in personal nursing practice.

The SON’s philosophy will be learning should be fun, interesting, engaging, interactive, and challenging.
