Congratulations to Idaho State University nursing student Sami Phuyal, who was selected as this year’s doctorate recipient of a $3,000 scholarship from the Nurse Practitioners of Idaho (NPI)! The scholarship is awarded annually by NPI board members to one master’s student and one doctoral student in the state.

What a great video! Congrats to our nursing grads and all of the Class of 2020!

Congratulations Kelsey! It is truly a joy to see you represent the profession of nursing and our College. You are headed toward a brilliant, bright career as a compassionate nurse!

Kelsey Scott—Deary, Idaho, Bachelor of Science in Nursing, College of Nursing—Never one to just follow the normal prescribed road, Scott is known for seeking out additional challenges and knowledge. She is known for her desire to learn, as opposed to merely earning a grade. With a perfect 4.0 GPA, Scott was able to thrive in a rigorous learning environment, while carrying 18 or more credits a semester. Despite an already full load, she shouldered the added rigor of the University Honors Program to her other academic pursuits. During her rotation in Obstetrics, she was eager to gain additional knowledge in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and worked overnight shifts to obtain that experience—despite the fact that it wasn’t a required part of the curriculum. For her internship she chose to work in a geriatric psychiatric unit because she didn’t know very much about the population. As a result, she is earning an additional certification in geriatric care.

Outside her academic pursuits, Scott has been working as a Certified Nursing Assistant for 3 years at Firth Medical Center. She played on the ISU Women’s Rugby team, serving as team captain. She also served as the University Honor’s Program Club President.

Scott plans to gain a few years’ experience in the nursing profession, before returning to school to become a Family Nurse Practitioner.

Community Health Workers (CHWs) play an important role in the health of communities. They work in a variety of settings to promote wellness, help community members navigate the health care system, and provide information and assistance in culturally appropriate ways.

Joanne Adams is a bilingual student in the College of Nursing DNP Family Nurse Practitioner program at Idaho State University. Working with her DNP Project team, she rapidly responded to an expressed need by developing a learning module to provide training for CHWs about COVID-19. The module is available in English and Spanish. Over 95 CHWs have registered for the module so far, and over 50 have completed it.
