As we prepare for the 2018 scholarship season, we wanted to share their stories and essays with other students curious about our scholarship opportunity!
The wait is over! After receiving 7,293 applications from undergraduate and graduate nursing students, we are delighted to announce the winner of our third annual undergraduate scholarship and the winner of our second annual graduate nursing scholarship.
A nurse is assessing four student nurses while adding sterile solution to the sterile field. Which student nurse’s action is correct?
1.) Student A
2.) Student B
3.) Student C
4.) Student D
Correct Option/Answers: 3
Rationale: Option 1: The student nurse should hold the sterile solution 4 to 6 inches above the sterile field. Pouring the sterile solution from 9 inches would lead to splashing, which in turn contaminates the sterile field. Option 2: Student B should not store the sterile solution for further use. Reusing the opened container will lead to contamination. Option 3: Student C’s action is correct. The sterile bowl should be placed at the corner of the sterile field, which would prevent the nurse from reaching over and contaminating the field. Option 4: Student D should wear the gloves after adding the supplies to the sterile field. Adding supplies after donning the sterile gloves would contaminate them.
The moment you have all been waiting for is here! After receiving 3,356 applications from undergraduate and graduate nursing students, we are delighted to announce the winner of our second annual undergraduate scholarship and the winner of our first annual graduate nursing scholarship.
Our winner is Megan Maddox, a BSN student at Belmont University in Nashville, TN. In addition to being a full-time student, she works two jobs – this summer, she is working as a barista at a local coffee shop.
