Engelhard Fellows and students publish study

Nurse Education Today has published a study by Kristin Reeve and Catherine Shumaker, recent alumnae of the School of Nursing and Health Studies (NHS), and Joan Riley and Edilma Yearwood, long-time Engelhard Fellows and faculty at NHS. Their article is titled  “Perceived Stress and Social Support in Undergraduate Nursing Students’ Educational Experiences.” In it, the authors explore the impact of stress on baccalaureate nursing students. They argue for the importance of faculty involvement in helping students to develop coping strategies: “Educators have the potential to impact the development of their students as they transition into nurses capable of handling the rigors of the profession.”

More about the study and its authors can be found on the NHS website. The abstract and full text of the article are available from Science Direct.
