Students in the nursing program at the University of Louisiana at Monroe recently selected members of their class to receive the Nurse Peer Awards and Spirit of Nursing Awards for the 2003-2004 academic year. Awards were presented at the Student Awards Ceremony held recently.
Voted on by students in the nursing class, the Nurse Peer Award goes to the student that other students would hope to have care for them if they were ill. The Spirit of Nursing Award is given to the student who has been the most supportive, positive, encouraging and uplifting in their class.
