M.S.N. Practicum Project Propels Leadership Student Forward


The Ron & Kathy Assaf College of Nursing Executive Leadership practicum provides an opportunity for students to apply what they have learned in the Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) program while in their organization. Students, in conjunction with their preceptors, select a project that will expand their knowledge base and enable them to showcase their leadership skills. Knowledge and leadership was recently demonstrated in a presentation that was done by Rebekah Babich to the leadership of Joe DiMaggio’s Children’s Hospital. The presentation Rebekah made was regarding the Magnet Recognition Program; the organization is aspiring to achieve Magnet status. The chief nursing officer (CNO) was so impressed with Rebekah’s knowledge and enthusiasm that she invited Rebekah to attend the Magnet Conference to be held this fall in Denver, CO. Rebekah stands poised to contribute to the achievement of her organization’s goal of Magnet status. It’s a win for Rebekah, a win for Joe DiMaggio’s Children’s Hospital, and a win for the Ron and Kathy Assaf College of Nursing at Nova Southeastern University.
