WAU Nursing Professors Win Awards

Spring 2017

Washington Adventist University (WAU) nursing professors, Bonnie Franckowiak, DNP, and Basava Jitta, MSN, will be recognized for their work in the coming weeks and months.

Franckowiak has been invited to present a poster at the American Association of Collegiate Nursing (AACN) Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. Franckowiak’s poster, “Integrating Substance Abuse Content into the Nursing Curriculum,” will be presented at the AACN Conference, “Master’s Education Perspectives: Preparing Nurse Educators and Leaders to Embrace Change and Improve Practice.”

Jitta will receive a Sigma Theta Tau International award from the Kappa Chapter at Catholic University for her doctoral dissertation abstract, “Perceived Barriers to Diabetes Self-Management among Asian-Indian Population Residing in the U.S.A.”

WAU offers a bachelor’s degree in nursing through the traditional program, along with three master’s programs in nursing in an accelerated evening format – all accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.

The graduate programs are offered through WAU’s School of Graduate and Professional Studies to accommodate working adults. Included is an RN-MSN program that takes nurses with an associate's degree directly to a master’s degree, a master’s degree in nursing education, and a master’s in nursing and business leadership.
