Nurse researchers honor professor YSN and Yale Child Study Center professor

YSN and Yale Child Study Center professor Lois S. Sadler ’79MSN is the 2014 recipient of the Eastern Nursing Research Society’s (ENRS) Suzanne Feetham Nurse Scientist Family Research Award. The award is given annually in recognition of outstanding contributions to family research and scholarship. ENRS, whose vision is promoting health through nursing science, is dedicated to creating a community of nurses interested in promoting and supporting regional nursing research in the eastern region of the United States.

YSN mentors neighboring school

After experiencing building damage from the cold winter weather, more than 374 students and 50 teachers and staff from Peck Place Elementary School in Orange, Connecticut, temporarily relocated earlier this year to the building attached to YSN’s new home on Yale’s West Campus. Since their arrival on campus, the YSN administration was eager to build a relationship between the two schools. After meetings between the Peck Place principal and YSN’s executive deputy dean Holly Powell Kennedy, a number of activities were coordinated to expose the students to nursing. Said Kennedy, “We wanted to be welcoming, but to also introduce the children to what learning to be a nurse means—to get them excited about science and health care.”

Symposium concludes YSN’s 90th anniversary year

A May symposium celebrating the scholarly contributions of Yale nurses was the concluding event to YSN’s 90th anniversary year. The day began with the annual Sybil Palmer Bellos lecture presented by Ada Sue Hinshaw ’63MSN, dean of the Graduate School of Nursing at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences, titled “Celebrating Scholarship: Our Disciplines’ Journey.” Following Hinshaw’s lecture were presentations by a number of YSN alumni, including Marie Bakitas ’06DSciNur, Bernice Coleman ’83MSN, Marjorie Funk ’84MSN, ’92PhD, M. Tish Knobf ’82MSN, and Lois Siebert Sadler ’79MSN. Closing remarks were given by Dean Margaret Grey ’76MSN before the Wisser Tea reception.
