Spring 2013 is now here. We have completed the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) review and we have also undergone Quality Assurance Process – called QUQAPS at Queen’s University. The students in the four year program will be returning to their homes and we wish them all a fun and exciting summer. Meantime the students in the two year program are still taking courses and the nurse practitioner students are in clinical practice this summer or taking the systematic review course. Many research based graduate students are writing up results and defending their thesis. In addition this is a time when faculty spend time conducting their own research – all this activity means the School of Nursing does not shut down in the summer. On April 15th two PhD students defended their thesis – these will be the first students to graduate with a PhD in Nursing from Queen’s. We wish them all the best in their future careers. We will be welcoming incoming students for an orientation to the School over the summer and we will also be working hard to prepare for the fall term of 2013. In the fall we will also launch our 75th anniversary of the School being founded with news of activities to be held in 2016.
