JSU Nursing alumnus, Andrew Shelton receives Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center STAR Award for care in the community! During a recent flight from Dallas to Ontario, California with his wife, Andrew responded to an overhead announcement from flight attendants asking for medical assistance needed for a passenger. Upon accessing the aircraft’s medical equipment and speaking with an on-ground physician, Andrew and another nurse on board started two IVs and began oxygen on the unresponsive passenger. He continued to treat and monitor the passenger until handing over care to emergency workers following an emergency landing in Phoenix. Thank you, Andrew, for your service to the community and representing the nursing profession. Your dedication demonstrates the stated mission of JSU Nursing: "Empowering exemplary nurses to care for anyone, anytime, anywhere".

"My nursing advice to nursing students would be to breathe and take it one day at a time. You chose nursing to help people and be a part of the healing process. Even on days where you feel like giving up, always remember why you chose nursing in the first place. Study, do the work and make every second count. It can be challenging but you are here for a reason and you have a purpose. It will never be easy, but it will always be worth it."

"Is nursing school challenging? Of course. Is it rewarding? Absolutely!

Nursing school is one of the greatest experiences of my life and I encourage future nurses to keep pushing. Do not give up. Being a nurse is like being an earth angel and is the most rewarding privilege I could ever imagine. Utilize your resources, BREATHE, and be the rockstar that you are!"

"My advice to upcoming nursing students is to make a study schedule and stick to it. I like to start studying for the exam at least one week before so that I can take a couple of hours every day to study rather than cramming all day and night right before the exam. If you don’t make the grade you want to on an exam, find out what you did right and what you could’ve done better and adapt with each exam.

Remember that your mental and physical health should come before school, so get some sleep, exercise, pray, talk to others, and find a stress-relieving hobby. Don’t be afraid to ask for help and don’t be afraid to answer the questions you already know!

Continue the hard work that got you into this program and you’ll do great!"

"My advice to upcoming nursing students would be don’t allow yourself to get too overwhelmed. Your mental health is very important, and you have to take time for yourself sometimes even though you may be bogged down with school. Also, meet new people. You will find yourself meeting lifelong friends in nursing school!"

Gracie's advice to nursing students: "Schedules, assignments, exams, checkoffs, and clinicals can easily overwhelm you when all of it is too much to fit in a planner. The most important thing to remember is to take it one day at a time. It’s always good to look ahead and know when to prepare for what’s coming. However, to reach that point you have to accomplish your goals for today first. At the beginning of the semester it always helps me to make a list of the homework, exams, validations, and clinicals based on the due dates from each class. This provides some organization to help me stay on track with due dates and the relief and satisfaction of checking each item off the list. As simple as it sounds, remember to breathe. Don’t be afraid to talk to your professors or ask questions when you need help. You are in this program for a reason and have been accepted based on your hard work, intelligence, dedication, and compassion. Whenever you feel overwhelmed, remember that every person in your cohort is in the same boat and they will be your family, study partner, and confidant through it all. Finally, let your faith be bigger than your fear."

"My best advice to any nursing student would be to find joy throughout the process. There will be days that overwhelm you and test your diligence, but stick with it! It is worth it and you are SO capable! Enjoy the good days and experiences; remember you are human and you do not have to be perfect. Try your hardest at each test, but don't stress yourself out over it. You can and will finish your degree! Never forget why you started and why you want to finish. For study tips: record in class lectures and/or go back to online lectures and listen while you study. I like to write down extra notes while doing this. It also helps me to make "study sheets" of the main points, things that I find important, and things that I may need to review again. Practicing NCLEX style questions helps, as well!"

Hunter's advice for nursing students: "Nursing school is difficult and stressful, but I suggest finding a study group. Talking through the material and teaching each other has been successful for me. If you are ever struggling or need help, don't hesitate to reach out to your instructors. They truly care about you and want you to be successful. Aside from the coursework and clinical, don't forget to have fun, make memories, and take care of yourself."

"My advice to upcoming and current nursing students is to not give up and don’t be afraid to ask questions. All of the nursing instructors once were students, so they understand how difficult it can be but they want to see you succeed! Balance is important to your mental health, whenever you have a break do something that helps your mind relax. If you ever feel discouraged reach out to a classmate, myself, instructors, or someone in your support group because you are not alone in this journey!

The library is probably my favorite place to study! There are many floors that you can go and sit by yourself or with a study group. The library has an NCLEX question bank on the computers that will help when you start to take exams that are set up in that format. Utilize your ATI books!!! ATI has material that will be helpful in passing the NCLEX and exams, also read the chapters in your e-books there is a ton of information in there. Doing this was my saving grace when I did not understand certain course material."

"My advice to nursing students would be to plan out your study time. As soon as you get your class calendar, write those dates in your planner, phone, Google calendar, or whatever to keep you organized. Then, at minimum, one week before each exam, schedule 2-3 hours every day to review material, read, listen to lectures, or just to talk through the material with a fellow classmate. I promise you’ll notice a difference in your grades, and you will feel more comfortable with the material. Also, don’t be afraid to speak up in class. You have some amazing professors who would love for you to ask questions or respond to their questions during lecture. They’re here to help you so let them do just that."--D'Che JANS Event Planner

When West found out that there was a dire need of nurses in New York, she knew she had to do something to help. Within a month of receiving this news, she moved to Bethpage, New York to work in a hospital treating COVID-19 patients.

Recognize any or all of these styles while out and about? It's important to make sure you're wearing your cloth face covering properly to help protect others and stop the spread of COVID-19.

Wash your hands before putting on your face covering and after taking it off. Make sure your face covering goes over your nose and mouth, is secured under your chin, and fits snugly against the sides of your face. Learn other tips from the CDC: bit.ly/32D0Niz.

On this Memorial Day, JSU Nursing would like to honor those that sacrificed all in their service to our nation. One of those was First Lieutenant Sharon Ann Lane, a registered nurse, who was killed when the 312th Evacuation Hospital in Chu Lai, Republic of Vietnam was struck in a mortar attack. She paid the ultimate price while providing care to those in need…its what nurses do! Thank you Lieutenant Lane and all the others that gave their all.

Our project, "Breathe EASIER", is a pilot program of remotely supervised pulmonary rehab via telehealth for clients with chronic lung disease. It is an interdisciplinary program involving students in nursing, respiratory therapy, and exercise science. It is the first of its' kind for our students and for the community. Client participants conduct weekly virtual nurse check-ins and participate in tailored strengthening exercises as well as education about managing their lung conditions. The overall aim of the program is to improve the quality of life and functional capacity of individuals with chronic, disabling lung disease who, at this time, are unable or have chosen not to participate in a traditional center-based pulmonary rehab program. Telehealth is a rapidly growing method of care delivery that, until now, has not been well studied in pulmonary rehabilitation.
Funding for “Breathe EASIER” is made possible by a Big Idea grant from the Longleaf Fund of the Community Foundation of Northeast Alabama #JSUNursing #RMCCares
