At Mennonite College of Nursing we have a passion for identifying health-related needs in our communities, and then working to ideate and implement solutions for those needs. We are proud of the incredible work our faculty do and the impacts they make with intiatives like America's Promise, CAUSE, ANEW, and more.
America's Promise partners with local schools to provide improved access to care for children. In 2017, the America's Promise Schools Project received an Innovation in Nursing Education award from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing.
Working in partnership with McLean County Health Department and local outpatient facilities, we seek to prevent hospital readmission by coordinating care for chronic illness, mental health, and more.
To improve access to care and quality of care in more remote areas of the United States, this HRSA-supported initiative prepares Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) students to practice in rural and under-served settings following graduation.
To advance the science of simulation, we actively conduct research to improve our student outcomes, improve our simulation program, and ultimately, impact patient outcomes.
The college also supports individual initiatives to improve nursing practice and education. Recent projects include:
Dr. Marilyn Prasun, BroMenn Endowed Professor, is working with staff nurses to facilitate evidence-based practice at Carle BroMenn Medical Center.
Dr. MyoungJin Kim is studying the best practices for teaching statistics to nursing students.
