More than 70 students from Morningside College’s department of nursing education offered oral or poster presentations on various aspects of the nursing profession during the 25th annual Maud Adams Nursing Research Day, held on Wednesday, April 11, on the college campus.
The annual research day, started in 1983 as a tribute to the late Maud Adams, was created to feature the work of students and to provide a mechanism to promote professional development. Adams, a former chair of the Morningside nursing department, was an instrumental leader in the early days of the department of nursing education.
Research projects by senior nursing students were also presented as part of Morningside’s Palmer Student Research Symposium, also held the same day.
