In today's society, awareness of global developments and cross-cultural competencies are crucial in dealing with differences and learning from people of other cultures.  The Global Scholars Program is designed to prepare professionals for this international state of affairs.  The first student to achieve Global Scholar status from the College of Education and Health Sciences was in 2007.  This nursing major, Ashley Slazes, also designed the global scholars pin.  5 students from the Department of Nursing were recognized as Global Scholars and received their award during the Department Senior Recognition Ceremony held on May 11, 2012.

The 2012 Global Scholars from the Department of Nursing at Bradley University were, Jill Bressner, Rachel Downs, Erin Dunne, Nancy Leech & Mary Tipton.

Congratulations to our 2012 Nursing Global Scholars!
