Midway MANS is sponsoring two meetings in November. Those who attend will receive a leadership portfolio certificate. These events are geared toward second year ADN students specifically but 115 students are also welcome to attend.
Kaplan NCLEX review rep Evan Dillow will be in the NSG classroom on Monday, November 9th at 1700. He is providing pizza and drinks so please sign up so he can purchase enough for everyone. Those who attend will receive a discount code for the Kaplan review and one lucky attendee will receive a free NCLEX prep course. Kaplan materials are available to you as soon as you book a course (210 students can start accessing materials way before graduation). Check outhttp://www.kaptest.com/nursing/nclex-prep for Kaplan Review dates/times/locations.
Hurst Review rep will be at Midway on Monday, November 23rd at 1700. Please RSVP at http://www.hurstreview.com/event/13959
They will also provide pizza so please be sure to sign up in advance.
MANS would like to congratulate Kristie Stambaugh (NSG 115) on her new position as KANS Secretary for 2016! Kristie was elected on October 4th, 2015 at the KANS Conference in Lexington, KY, held at the Embassy Suites.
Congrats, Kristie! We know you will do an excellent job!
Midway MANS will be hosting the Leadership Portfolio informational meeting within the next couple weeks. This meeting will take place in the nursing classroom (AHR 103) on Wednesday, September 30th at 1600. Ashley Waid (MANS President) and Megan Coots (MANS VP) will be helping students with frequently asked questions and provide examples of what a completed portfolio looks like.
It has been brought to my attention that the September 30th date does not work for the NSG 115 night students. It is equally important that the night students have this information so I have planned a separate meeting for them. The other meeting will take place in the nursing classroom on Tuesday, October 6th at 1700. Students other than NSG 115 are welcome to attend this date/time if the other date conflicts with their schedule.
Please let me know if you have any questions and I hope to see everyone soon!
Ashley Waid – MANS President
Midway MANS now accepts pre-nursing students! We have already had 2 pre-nursing students join MANS this semester. If you know any interested pre-nursing students, then please send them our way! You may have them contact any of the officers to get an application or stop by the MANS board (located outside of the nursing classroom). Completed applications and payment should go to our MANS Treasurer, Emily Jacobsen.
