NOTEWORTHY

Congratulations to Instructor Maryellen Brisbois (Nursing) on being awarded the Massachusetts Association of Nursing (MACN) 2009 Early Career Nursing Educator. This award is presented to a nursing faculty member who is new to the role as a nursing educator. Instructor Brisbois began her teaching career in fall 2007. A few of her exemplary accomplishments are as follows: Implementing the triage class activity for senior nursing majors in Community Health Nursing in fall 2007; Implementing the Cardboard Village Project in Fall 2008: Seniors nursing majors slept overnight in cardboard boxes with minimum supplies to learn about homelessness; Co-recipient of a WSC grant to examine the use of PDAs (handheld palms) in the clinical setting. 

Ellen Rearick (Nursing) was selected as an Item Writer for the National Council of State Boards of Nursing Licensure Examination (NCLEX).  NCSBN, headquartered in Chicago, is responsible for developing and administering the NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN licensing exams. Rearick was approved by the Massachusetts Board of Nursing and selected by NCSBN to participate on the NCLEX item development panel of subject matter experts that was held in Chicago, Ill. on March 9-12. Rearick was one of 12 nurses from across the nation to be selected for this assignment. She was nominated on the basis of clinical specialty and nursing expertise.

Over 250 Attend Hanover Fundraiser
for WSC Student Scholarships

Kimberly Brothers-Caisse

The Rat Pack Is Back! transported over 250 WSC alumni, faculty, staff, and friends back through time and space on Thursday, March 26 to a balmy night circa 1960 when four show-business legends, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop, and Dean Martin, converged at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas for the first time. It was the inaugural Worcester State College Night at The Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts, and proceeds benefited scholarships for WSC students. Over 100 people, mostly members of the Class of 1969, gathered beforehand for a special cocktail reception. This special fundraiser for student scholarships was the brainchild of theatre co-owners Ed Madaus, M.Ed. ’72, whose wife, Margaret, is a member of the Class of 1969, and Paul Demoga ’67.

    FREE HEARING EVALUATION AT WSC CLINIC

    Faculty, staff and students - Do you have to ask people to repeat what they say before you can understand them? Do you often turn your ear toward a sound to hear it better? Do you hear better when you're looking directly at a speaker's face? Do you find it hard to follow conversation when you're in a group of people?

    These are signs of hearing loss. Fortunately, treatment for hearing problems has never been better. Even the slightest hearing loss can be treated. If you think you have even a slight hearing problem, find out for sure. Schedule a hearing evaluation appointment at the WSC Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic for a Monday afternoon or a Wednesday morning by calling Susanna Meyer at ext. 8562.
