Nursing Writers of Excellence

What is the Nursing Writers of Excellence Award?

Every semester, Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) students are required to produce a QEP written assignment to demonstrate competency of nursing career knowledge and skills. These QEP papers take a considerable amount of time and effort, as the students can unanimously attest; however, their hard work is not without reward. Students in their last semester were assigned a QEP paper to craft their own nursing philosophy, and the top papers from the Professional Nursing Leadership course were selected by a panel of judges comprised of writing support assistants from Homestead and the Medical Campus.
