at WBP Rotary Club Meeting
April 18, 2023
Dean Safiya George was the guest speaker at the West Palm Beach Rotary Club's April meeting. The focus of her presentation was on the national and regional nursing shortage. She discussed the challenges faced by the nursing profession including staff and faculty shortages, burnout and the COVID-19 impact and explained the important role that nurses play in our health care system. Furthermore, Dean George shared her insights on how the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing is making a difference in addressing this critical issue through research, practice, nationally-ranked academic programs and student scholarships. This was a great opportunity to connect with the members of the West Palm Beach Rotary Club. We appreciate their support of the college and the nursing profession.
