Hello WSNA Students and Advisors,
My name is Kayla Nyseth and I am so honored to be serving as your 2014-15 Wisconsin Student Nurses’ Association President. I began my service on the WSNA executive board two years ago as Eastern Regional Director. Then I continued my involvement as Legislative Vice President. This organization has assisted me to grow in my professionalism as well as my leadership skills. It has been so enjoyable working with such an amazing group of student leaders. I will graduate with my BSN in May 2015 from Concordia University Wisconsin in Mequon. I am currently a nurse intern for the Mayo Clinic Health System.
Upcoming on Saturday, May 31st, the board of directors will be volunteering to support the Aplastic Anemia and MDS International Foundation. We’d like to invite you to participate with other patients, families and friends in the 3rd Annual Milwaukee Hope, Steps & A Cure Walk. This is a wonderful opportunity to connect with others directly affected by a bone marrow failure disease while also helping to spread awareness in your community. This walk is along being held in collaboration with Concordia University Wisconsin and Alverno College.
Registration for the Walk will begin at 9:00 am at the Environmental Center. The walk will be a 5K course along around the beautiful campus of Concordia University Wisconsin with a beautiful view of the Lake Michigan lakefront. Festivities include team photos, inspirational speakers, a silent auction, and a day of fun connecting with fellow patients and families affected by a bone marrow failure disease to raise awareness and funds.
At this time, I would like to announce this years date for our Annual College of Chapter Board. It will be held on October 18th, 2014. Please mark your calendars. Feel free to let us know if you have any ideas or anything in particular that you would like to see at this event.
Lastly, 2015 WSNA Convention will be held at the Kalahari Convention Center in Wisconsin Dells, WI on February 6th-8th, 2015.
I look forward to seeing many of you this year and I will continue to keep you updated on upcoming events and news.
