Below is a symbol of the abundance of blessings and grace GOD has bestowed on us. Together, we continue to forge great work; we are filled with appreciation and gratitude to have such committed colleagues.
I want to share that we have been blessed with all our accomplishments thus far.
After our thorough review, Dr. Degrano and Dr. Torres submitted all requirements to the CA Board of Registered Nursing for the upcoming virtual visit in January 2023 for the Master of Science in Nursing program approval. Next on the agenda for the SON graduate program is the offering of the DNP and additional specializations such as Primary Mental Health Nurse Practitioner in Spring 2023.
Dr. Leveille continues to engage our graduating students in a rigorous NCLEX-RN review reinforcing their readiness for a successful licensure examination. On 11/22/2022, approximately 172 nursing students attended the virtual presentation of the “Test-Taking Strategies Seminar “provided by ATI for the American University of Health Sciences.
We are initiating a substantive application for Distance Learning (Hybrid) and additional specializations in the MSN program.
Dr. Islam submitted a proposal for a presentation on AUHS Interprofessional Education at the 2023 Accreditation Resource Conference (ARC2023) next year. Co-presenter is David Omut. The School of Pharmacy continues to monitor its graduates preparation for the NAPLEX while student recruitment for July 2023 start is in progress.
At the next “checking-in Meeting,” Terrell Golden and Nellie Greenspan will introduce the American University of Health Sciences- American University Research Academy (AURA), its mission, and vision. Scheduled to start in the Fall of 2023, Terrel and Nellie are meeting with targeted schools and communities while maintaining the International Baccalaureate (IB) candidate status and working towards achieving the accreditation.
I would like to thank the Financial Aid office, Business Office, Library, Admissions, and Student Services for all their continued support and excellent services to our students.
Dr. Davis, thank you for expanding our ministry through the Salt and light mission. In addition to our community prayers on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, this should keep us and our students grounded with our faith-based mission.
“We work as one, we hold the line, and we do not break”
