Yale School of Nursing (YSN) is launching the second semester of centennial celebrations with an online trivia quest that begins today. Anyone curious about the school’s 100-year history in the nation’s most trusted profession is welcome to learn more and enter for the chance to win one of two centennial swag bags.
All members of the Yale community, including students, faculty, and staff are invited to participate. In addition, anyone who is interested in nurses, midwives, or healthcare. YSN’s newly admitted students, many of whom will be on campus for Admitted Students Day on February 2, are also welcome to broaden their knowledge of YSN trailblazers and significant milestones.
Trivia Answer Sneak Peeks
YSN will use its four social media channels to share a weekly sneak peek at a trivia question and answer until the contest concludes on February 29. The first preview is available now.
