UVI SON Captures Two Prestigious National Awards

The newly formed University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) Student Nurses Association (SNA) chapter captured two national awards from the National Student Nurses Association (NSNA). After the announcement of the 2020 Program Award Winners, UVI School of Nursing’s (SON) SNA was named the recipient of the Winner's Way Award and the NSNA State Excellence Award.

Three students of the SON were also named as nominees for three prestigious awards. Valdeen Croft was nominated for the NSNA Isabel Hampton Robb Leadership Award. Shaunte Rawlins was nominated for the NSNA Core Values Award and Camille Emanuel for the NSNA Ambassador Award. All three students graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in May 2020.

“This achievement also realizes the goal of the SON to provide opportunities for students to engage in professional and leadership development opportunities that are available through the NSNA,” said Dr. Beverly Lansiquot, dean of the School of Nursing.

The SON would have been honored for these achievements at the NSNA 68th Annual Convention in Orlando FL., in April, had the COVID-19 outbreak not occurred.
