Student Awards

Creative Writing Awards

As nurses, we must do more to articulate what it is that we do, see, feel, and provide to our patients, families, and communities, so that our field will find its voice and speak to it in every forum possible. All students at Yale School of Nursing (YSN) are encouraged to write an account of what they do so that others will have an opportunity to peer into the world of nursing.

The 2016 Creative Writing Awards were held on April 8 at the New Haven Lawn Club featuring guest speaker Ron Suskind, author of Life Animated, A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes and Autism. Learn more about the winners and read their winning pieces.

Community Service Award

YSN students become leaders in advanced practice nursing by excelling in their studies and clinical work. Their leadership skills are further honed through their involvement in the community. Over the years, our students have helped develop and have taken part in numerous area outreach programs that have enriched the lives of individuals and families in Greater New Haven.
