Leadership opportunity for first-year undergraduate students

Do you want to make professional connections with local providers and community leaders, and be a voice for the School of Nursing?  Are you looking for a leadership position to build your resumé?
The School of Nursing’s Center for Aging Research and Education (CARE) is seeking one first-year undergraduate to join their steering committee.  The student will attend one steering committee meeting per semester and take part in related discussions.  You will work with community leaders and experts in the field of older adult health to provide student perspectives on CARE’s priorities and activities, and serve as a liaison with the student Geriatric Interest Group.  You will have two student colleagues on the committee: a second-year undergraduate and DNP graduate student.
This is an excellent opportunity for students to collaborate with leaders in health-related fields and gain insights about how nursing education, research and scholarship benefit practice.  Interested students should be confident in their communication abilities and interested in older adult health.
This opportunity is open to one first-year (junior standing) undergraduate nursing student.  Interested students should write a short paragraph about why they are interested and send it along with their resume to Diane at farsetta@wisc.edu.  References and statements of support are welcome but not necessary.  The deadline to apply is Monday, September 18.
CARE supports innovative research and teaching strategies, develops relevant and accessible resources for practicing nurses, and collaboratively engages health care professionals, formal and informal care providers, and community organizations—all to foster a new understanding of aging and the role of geriatric nursing.
