4/21/2017

Highland Community College's Beta Delta Chapter of the Alpha Delta Nu Honor Society for Nursing donated $175 to the Well Woman program at the Stephenson County Health Department.

In support of the fight against cancer, the students handed out prevention information and held a basketball raffle at the Cougar Women's Basketball game on February 7. Cancer survivors and fighters were recognized during half-time.

The objective of the Organization for Associate Degree Nursing (OADN) Alpha Delta Nu Nursing Honor Society is to recognize the academic excellence of students in completing an Associate Degree Nursing. The society encourages the pursuit of advanced degrees in the profession of nursing as well as continuing education as a life-long professional responsibility. Additionally, the society participates in the recruitment of qualified individuals into the profession of nursing.

The requirements to join Alpha Delta Nu include the following:

- Minimum GPA of 3.0 or above in all general education classes

- Earned grade of B or better in each nursing class

- No previous failures of any nursing class.

Students would be invited to provisional membership after successful completion (see above) of at least one semester of a nursing course. Full membership is granted in the final semester of study if the student maintains cumulative 3.0 GPA and earns a grade of B or better in all courses. Students must have demonstrated conduct that reflects integrity and professionalism.
