provides a great opportunity for our students to network with nurses from
around the globe.We can exchange ideas, and share our work with other nurse
researchers,” Dr.Torregosa explained.

experiences and presentation opportunities.
“This is one of our cherished core values and these students performed
remarkably. To be able to present at an international Congress as a graduate
student is a rare accomplishment and we are enormously proud of them and the
faculty researchers,”
