Stephanie Lichtwardt is a senior nursing student and will graduate in May 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. Following her aspirations to be involved in research one day, she has been working at the School of Nursing as a research assistant while completing her studies. Stephanie is also active in the Student Nurses Association and currently serves as the President, which gives students opportunities to volunteer in the community and grow their professional skills. She hopes to continue her education to become an advanced practice nurse and nursing school professor.
The Student Nurses Association at CSUSM is a student-run, self-governed chapter of the National Student Nurses Association.
“Our mission is to support and encourage academic and professional growth while empowering our members to become leaders through increasing involvement, partnership, networking, and community service,” Stephanie says. “Through the use of advocacy, values, and ethics, we uphold the high standards of the nursing profession and inspire philanthropy of time, skills and resources.”
