AURORA, Colo. – CU College of Nursing faculty, staff and students gathered May 9 to celebrate the profession at the National Nurses Week Celebration and Ice Cream Social. Adding to the festivities was the college’s roll out of an official new image campaign.
The events provided the perfect opportunity for the college to display new campaign posters, banners, flyers and exhibit displays showing how the campaign is being implemented throughout the college. T-shirts bearing the new tagline, “Be the nurse everyone looks to first,” were offered to all who attended the roll-out event.
“Over the past year, we’ve determined that two things make the CU College of Nursing unique: leadership and excellence,” said Dean Sarah Thompson, PhD, RN, FAAN. “Evidence supports the fact that our faculty are looked to nationally for leadership; our alumni become chief nursing officers, deans, nurse scientists and educators; our new graduates are sought after by employers; and our programs are chosen first by prospective students. We are the college looked to first in Colorado and beyond. Now we have a brand that reflects that reputation.”
The Nursing Student Council hosted a taco bar as well as a raffle of branded items, valuable textbooks, and supplies. The CU Student Nurses Association (CUSNA) sponsored the ice cream social, again this year.
