Seton Hall University College of Nursing student, Kelly Fristensky, who is entering her senior year, just completed a prestigious internship through the Methodist Advancement into Professional Practice (MAPP) summer program.
MAPP creates opportunities for undergraduate nursing students to work in clinical settings during their summer break. This prestigious program accepts students from all over the country who are highly-ranked -- only 17 were chosen this year -- within their baccalaureate program. The program matches students with their preferred specialties and they are given the best learning experiences possible, while practicing at Houston Methodist Hospital.
Kelly was able to work in the Labor and Delivery unit and notes of the program, "This experience has given me the opportunity to transition my didactic skills into clinical skills. Also, it has allowed me to learn my strengths and how much I still have to learn."Ann Scanlon McGinity, Ph.D., R.N., FAAN, Senior Vice President and Chief Nurse Executive at Houston Methodist Hospital, is a Seton Hall nursing alumna and remains a pirate even though she lives in Texas. “I attribute my success in nursing to the many fine and wonderful teachers I had at Seton Hall, who professionally and personally fostered innovation and creativity, in particular: Josephine Iorio, Elizabeth Baumgartner and Lucille Joel.”
