Belton, Texas – The Scott & White College of Nursing at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor will hold its Nursing Capstone Symposium on Monday, April 15, from 9:00 a.m. to noon and 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. in the Weir Lecture Hall of the Isabelle Rutherford Meyer Nursing Education Center on the UMHB campus.  This event is free and open to the public.

The Symposium provides the opportunity for students graduating with their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) or Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN) to present an overview of their Nursing Capstone Projects.  These projects require students to apply concepts and processes studied throughout the nursing curriculum as well as utilize knowledge gained from their liberal arts foundation. In addition, projects are to be of benefit to the communities they serve. This culminating experience in the Nursing Capstone Seminar is a principal condition in the successful completion of the UMHB Scott & White College of Nursing programs. Projects are presented in professional poster or PowerPoint format.

The Symposium is sponsored by the Scott and White College of Nursing and co-sponsored by Tau Epsilon, the UMHB Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau, the International Honor Society for Nursing.  The Symposium planning committee includes: Tracy Booth, MS.Ed., RN, Michele Hackney, MSN, RN, CNE, Carrie Johnson, DNP, RN, FNP-C, and Kathy Long, MSN, RN, CNE.
