Leadership Opportunity for First-year Undergraduate Student

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 our advisory committee.  The student chosen will:

  • Attend one advisory committee meeting per semester and take part in related discussions;
  • Work with community leaders and experts in the field of older adult health to provide student perspectives on CARE’s priorities and activities;
  • Serve as a liaison with the student Geriatric Interest Group; and
  • Will be one of three student members (joining a senior-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 interested in older adult health and confident in their communication abilities.

This opportunity is open to one first-year (junior standing) undergraduate nursing student.  To apply, write a short paragraph about why you are interested and send it along with your resumé to Diane at farsetta@wisc.edu.  References and statements of support are welcome but not necessary.  The deadline to apply is September 18.

CARE supports discoveries that improve aging, and builds the skills and capacity of those who care for older adults. For more information, please visit: CARE.nursing.wisc.edu
