TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – The Nursing Honor Society at Indiana State University hosted their annual research showcase providing a deeper look into the medical field.
More than 150 students and faculty gathered at the Landsbaum Center for Health Education in Terre Haute.
Their keynote speakers presented new research to future nurses. Some of the topics included therapeutic hypothermia, addressing spiritual needs of a patient and a presentation on how to prevent in-hospital newborn falls.
Officials say the showcase is just one way ISU’s Nursing Program aims to improve quality of care across the Wabash Valley.
“It’s very important that we equip students with the tools we need one day to be the nurse that has the evidence based practice that makes a difference in the people’s lives in the Wabash Valley,” said Terri Moore, vice president Sigma Theta Tau.
The event also marks the 50th anniversary of nursing observance at ISU.
