Each spring the Lion’s Club of Beirut honors the nursing profession by giving awards to students from seven nursing programs in Lebanon. The Alice Ramez Chagoury School of Nursing (ARCSON) has participated in the awards program since 2012 by selecting on BSN II student to receive the award. This year the faculty selected Ms. Zeina Mhanna to represent ARCSON. Ms. Mhanna was chosen based on her high academic achievement, leadership and professionalism. She and nursing students from the six other programs received their awards at a ceremony sponsored by the Lion’s Club on Wednesday, June 1, at Alumni Hall, American University of Beirut.
Each student was asked to make a short presentation. In her speech, Ms. Mhanna related factors that influence her decision to study nursing and highlighted the importance of knowledge and health promotion. “Nursing is fostering in me the passion to do volunteer work, to be the positive agent of change at the university and in my community. It is nurturing in me the knowledge and communication skills to empower people and to teach them how to promote their health.”
Congratulations Ms. Mhanna, on receiving the 2016 Lion’s Club Award.
