The Michigan Chapter Offers a Professional Experience for Student Nurses
To build a strong relationship with future nurses, the Michigan Association of Rehabilitation Nurses (MIARN) provides a group of student nurses with a professional experience, while showing them that continued learning can be fun, exciting, and stimulating.
Each year, MIARN holds an all-day educational conference that offers the latest in nursing and healthcare trends and provides networking and exposure to many vendors and sponsors. This year, the topic was “Patient Centered Care: Striving Towards Excellence, Challenges of the Older Adult.” To reach out to future nurses, MIARN invited the graduating class of the Everest Institute School of Nursing for Licensed Practical Nurses to attend the conference at a significantly reduced rate of $25. The majority of students who attended were already scheduled to begin an RN program after graduation.
MIARN was honored to have 23 students and three faculty members attend our program. A raffle was held for MIARN members to receive gifts from vendors and sponsors and two $1000 scholarships to attend the ARN 2016 REACH Conference in Philadelphia. To make this an even more special day for the students, a special raffle was held just for them and provided two fully paid scholarships to the MIARN all-day educational conference, which will be held on May 17, 2017. The feedback from this group was excellent. MIARN hopes the conference showed nursing students that rehabilitation nursing is a wonderful profession and that continuing education is a necessary and fun part of their future careers.
