Dr. Davina Gosnell, former dean of Kent State’s College of Nursing from 1989 to 2004, was recently acknowledged as one of 100 Alumni Transformers in Nursing & Healthcare by The Ohio State University College of Nursing.
According to the Record Courier, she was recognized as being among alumni of the college who have deeply impacted the profession of nursing and the healthcare system, and for her contributions in nursing education leadership, global health initiatives and research, and publication.
Two Kent State University College of Nursing students recently received scholarships at the Nurses Choice Awards and Scholarship Luncheon, held at the Blackwell Hotel and Conference Center in Columbus, Ohio. Sponsored by the Ohio Nurses Foundation, the annual fundraiser awards notable nurses and future nurses with grants and scholarships. Interestingly, both of the honored Kent State nursing students have family members who also chose healthcare as a profession.
