A NAME KNOWN ‘ROUND THE WORLD
The reputation of the Trinitas School of Nursing stretches across the US and around the world. Nursing educators from the University of Auckland recently visited the school while in the New York metro area. Professor Melanie Birks and Associate Professor Jane Mills, of the University of Auckland, and Dr. Karen Hoare of the Centre for Nursing and Midwifery at James Cook University, shared findings in a study inspired by a previous visit to the school in 2011, when they learned about the patient simulation teaching model used here.
At the 11th Annual Harmabee Breakfast of the Greater Elizabeth Area Section of the National Council of Negro Women, Pamela Glover (second from left), Program Coordinator, Nursing Division, received the Section Award for her dedication and service. Pam celebrated with Cleadal Waye, Dr. Patricia Bennett, Erica Blount, and Joann Blount.

JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED!
While there are no people in these “People Page” photos, the completion of Phase 1 of Trinitas’ ER construction project will help many people – more than 73,000 per year to be exact. The new space will include 45 treatment rooms (up from its current 28), and separate treatment areas for families, children and seniors. Coming on line this month are a new reception/waiting/registration area, and a 128-slice CT Scanner. The overall project will be completed next year.
