Nursing faculty attend conferenceGANE

On February 20-22, 2020, several graduate and undergraduate Nursing faculty attended the Georgia Association of Nursing Education Annual Conference in Jekyll Island, Ga. Pictured are Dr. Mary Anne Shepherd, Dr. Kim Hasbach and Senior Lecturer Bonnie Gary at their presentation entitled “Developing Clinical Reasoning from Graduate to Undergraduate.” The presentation discussed the development and implementation of Pathophysiology and Illness Scripts assignments that are used in the Graduate and Undergraduate Nursing programs. Implementation of the assignments enabled students to develop clinical reasoning skills that are needed for practice as a Registered Nurse and Nurse Practitioner. Implementation of the assignments also allow for a smooth transition from undergraduate to graduate Studies as well as enhancing student readiness for practice.

Also presenting at the conference were Dr. Paula Bryant, and Lecturers, Rhonda Slocumb and Jessica Ouzts. Their presentation was entitled “Teaching Empathy and Compassion Through Simulation and Service Learning Experiences in a BSN Psychiatric Nursing Course.” This presentation discussed the development of the “Hearing Voices” Simulation and student participation in the Tim Tebow Foundation Night to Shine Event. The faculty presented how the use of these two activities in the Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing Course helped to engender feelings of empathy and compassion in nursing students. Simulation Coordinator, Laci Martin also assisted in the Implementation of these two projects.

Dr. Paula Bryant also delivered a podium presentation entitled “Course Collaboration to Implement High Impact Practices in Senior Level Nursing Courses. Her presentation detailed the collaboration with now retired Nursing Faculty, Dr. Joy Humphrey. This project helped to prepare graduating nursing students for practice by implementing assignments such as mock interviews and nursing quality improvement research projects that were presented at the Undergraduate Research Day.

Robins presents on teaching military history

Nearly 150 people gathered in Augusta, Georgia, February 6-8, 2020 for the annual meeting of the Georgia Association of Historians (GAH), an organization dedicated to the teaching and study of all areas of history. Dr. Glenn Robins, professor of history, presided as the president of the GAH. In addition, Robins was a participant in roundtable panel discussion sponsored by the Society for Military History (SMH). The panel title was, “Bringing Military History to Today’s Classroom: Strategies, Approaches, Relevancy. The panel chair and moderator was Dr. William Allison, Georgia Southern University and SMH Region IV: South Coordinator. Panelists included Dr. Jonathan Beall, University of North Georgia; Dr. John Fahey, Georgia Military College; Dr. Derek Mallet, U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, Fort Gordon; and Dr. Robins.

The roundtable was quite successful and drew an energetic audience that discussed such matters as teaching military history in ROTC programs and the challenges of teaching military history in the Professional Military Education environment, explored ways to teach military history in the U.S. and World History survey courses, and exchanged ideas about specific course and classroom assignments that incorporated aspects of military history.
