Dr. Kathy Stolfer, associate professor of nursing at Waynesburg University, recently presented at the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) Baccalaureate Nursing Education Conference in New Orleans, La.
Her presentation, “RN-BSN Courses: The Clinical Piece,” focused on the creation of required clinical components for RN-BSN courses according to what AACN mandates.
“I was very honored to be accepted, based on the fact that 339 abstract submissions were received and only 35 percent were accepted, which included podium and poster presentations,” Stolfer said. “My podium presentation was well-received, and I had a packed room!”
The annual conference presented issues of vital importance to baccalaureate and pre-licensure nursing education. AACN works to establish quality standards for nursing education; assist deans and directors to implement those standards; influence the nursing profession to improve health care; and promote public support for professional nursing education, research and practice.
