More than 70 Treasure Coast campus students from the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing attended a recent luncheon themed “A Dialogue with the Dean.” Traditional BSN, RN-BSN and family nurse practitioner graduate students talked with Dean Anne Boykin, who noted that she is more passionate about nursing today than when she began her career. Dr. Boykin stressed that in today’s workplace environment, with many RNs leaving their positions, the college’s guiding philosophy of nursing as caring truly motivates nurses to feel rejuvenated and stay in the profession. She also shared her research on integrating the caring approach into hospital practice settings.
