On March 17th, five Arkansas State University – Mountain Home (ASUMH) Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN) students traveled to Hope, AR, to participate in the ALPNA (Arkansas Licensed Practical Nurse Association) Competition and Conference. This was the second time that ASUMH sent a team to compete. The team entered in six categories and won a first place and a second place trophy. Ann Conyers placed first in the Interviewing contest and Caitlin Sinor placed second in Nutrition.
“ALPNA was a real confidence-booster and has motivated me to continue my nursing education to RN (registered nursing) level,” said Conyers of her participation. Sinor said that the competition helped her feel assured of her skills in nursing. “It was a great experience for our LPN students and I am thrilled that we placed in two categories. We are very proud!” said ASUMH Nursing Instructor, Denise Malloy, RN.
The purpose of ALPNA is to unite all licensed practical nurses in the State of Arkansas and promote contacts on national, state and local levels with groups interested in the improvement and extension of nursing service.
