Auburn and AUM nursing schools to host Dean’s Golf Outing June 15

AUBURN – The dean of the Auburn University Schools of Nursing, Gregg Newschwander, will host the second annual golf outing on June 15 at Moore’s Mill Club in Auburn to raise support for the schools’ graduate program.

Check-in for the Dean’s Golf Outing will begin at 7 a.m. The putting green and driving range will be open for participants. The shotgun start will take place at 8 a.m. Lunch will be served at 12:30 p.m., followed by the awards presentation at 1 p.m.

The individual registration fee of $175 includes cart and greens fees, lunch, cooler bag, tees and beverages. Foursomes and Tee Sponsors, playing and non-playing, are also available.

The Auburn Schools of Nursing have collaborated to address the shortage of nurses affecting the national, regional and local workforce by offering the Master of Science in Nursing, or MSN, degree program. The joint effort is designed to grow the number of nurse educators and nurse practitioners by providing students the best of both universities through the combined academic resources and faculty expertise. With a combination of online and classroom learning, the MSN program gives students the flexibility and training to take their careers to the next level.

“This is a historic year for our MSN program as we graduate the first class of primary care nurse practitioners,” said Anita All, MSN program director and Wells Fargo Endowed Professor. “As the shortage of nursing faculty and primary care providers facing Alabama and the nation threatens the quality of our healthcare system and puts a tremendous strain on practicing nurses everywhere, our joint graduate program is targeting this problem and helping to resolve it.”
