Accessing and understanding up-to-the-minute research is vital for future nurses.

Students in COM’s Associate Degree Nursing Program learn to do that through instruction and intensive group research. Freshmen will present their discoveries to the public Dec. 5 at 10 a.m. and Dec. 7 at 9 a.m. at College of the Mainland in the Technical-Vocational Building Room 1101.

Everyone is welcome to listen to future nurses share about priority topics from the Institute of Medicine and discuss evidence and best practices in health care.

COM’s outstanding Associate Degree Nurse Program trains students in current techniques as well as how to stay abreast of changes in the ever-evolving health care field. For more information about COM’s Associate Degree Nursing Program, visit
