By Jacob Just
University of Jamestown nursing student Kelsey Marschke was named the 2020 North Dakota state Nursing Student of the Year.
Marschke, a junior from Alice, North Dakota, received the award from the Nursing Students’ Association of North Dakota during their annual conference in Grand Forks January 23-25.
Several other students were elected to positions of leadership within the organization, including Hayley Johnson of Menahga, Minnesota being named the First Vice President for the NSAND.
“It was an honor to be surrounded by and hear from some of the most inspirational people in the field of Nursing, all from different areas of expertise and backgrounds,” said Johnson. “I’m truly inspired by the friends, classmates, and professors who have surrounded me.”
Attendees attended keynote and breakout sessions from nursing leaders from around North Dakota. The organization will hold their annual conference in Jamestown in 2021.
