Showcasing undergraduate scholarly work

Caite Cutler, Kaitlin Divinnie, and Alex Litvinov with Dr. Suzanne Zamerowski, their faculty advisor for their nutrition project in health promotion.


The 2nd Annual Undergraduate Nursing Scholar's Day was held on April 26th from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in Driscoll Hall’s lobby. The campus community was invited to review and discuss with the traditional and accelerated adult students their poster presentations.  The event was coordinated by Prof. Marita Frain and Dr. Bette Mariani.

Cover of an information brochure by Dr. Zamerowski's group which promoted healthy eating in cognitively challenged clients.

Sources of presentations include projects and papers by students in their Psychiatric Mental Health, Nursing Research, Leadership, and Health Promotion courses. In order to be a poster presenter, students were required to submit an abstract of their scholarly work and submit a faculty recommendation.

Students and their topics are listed below. Many of the students were recorded talking about their work. Click on their video links to the right.
