DNP students enhance learning with weekend immersions

One weekend per semester, students in the Doctor of Nursing Practice program come to Saint Mary's campus for an intensive immersion weekend as part of their nursing curriculum. The immersion weekends are opportunities for students and faculty to engage in face-to-face interactions in a traditional classroom setting. These weekend immersions are full of scholarly activities: students present research and practicum projects, guest lecturers share their expertise on various medical subjects, and students receive specific medial training, like suture instruction or attending a dermatology classroom clinic.
