The Michigan State University College of Nursing made a strong showing in this year’s Midwest Nursing Research Society awards last month. In all, researchers and students from the college collected six awards, the full list of which is below.

“It’s an honor for both them and the college to be recognized by this esteemed organization for their contributions to nursing science,” Dean Randolph F.R. Rasch said. “Thanks to their passion, tenacity and curiosity, Spartan nurses continue to lead the way, and honors such as these position the college as a thought leader in the industry.”
