Congratulations to all the graduates at this year’s Illinois ceremony! Here are some words of wisdom from one of your student speakers, Nassir Nassir:

"Amidst the struggles, there have also been moments of triumph and joy. We have forged lifelong friendships, discovered our passions, and achieved echelons we once thought impossible. Today, we celebrate not just our individual accomplishments, but the collective achievements of our entire class."

Here is today’s Mental Health Awareness Month tip:

“It is important to recognize that asking for help is vulnerable. Sharing about a tough experience is letting someone into your grief, fear, frustration, and inability to do it all. I find it essential to offer grace, kindness, and reassurance in these moments. Being kind goes a long way.”

Erin Clark Benedict
Instructor in the School of Health Sciences

Our Central Pasco Nursing students recently had a firsthand look at healthcare’s response to a mass casualty event. They joined hospital staff from three Advent Health locations, simulating a terrorism scenario involving chemical weapons. During the drill, students took on the role of patients, undergoing triage by medical professionals to bolster emergency preparedness in their communities. A debriefing session followed, offering valuable insights. A big thank you to all involved in strengthening our readiness for emergencies.

Our Mental Health Awareness Month tip for today comes from Brittani Bromley, Associate Dean of Nursing at our Eagan campus:

“The key to successful prioritization is consistency and self-awareness. It is important to stick to your plan and recognize when you are becoming overwhelmed. Taking breaks and engaging in activities that help relax you can prevent burnout and improve overall well-being. Each person has their own unique coping strategies, and finding what works best for you is crucial.”

Happy Provider Appreciation Day! We want to share a message of gratitude to everyone working in the field of early childhood education from Dr. Mary Muhs, associate dean in the School of Education:

“On this Provider Appreciation Day, I find myself reflecting on the incredible dedication and passion that you all bring to the field of early childhood education. In a world where the importance of early childhood education cannot be overstated, you are the unsung heroes who lay the foundation for lifelong learning. Your tireless efforts, boundless patience, and genuine love for children create an environment where they can thrive and grow.

Provider Appreciation Day serves as a reminder to express our gratitude for the vital role you play in shaping the future. Whether you are a current early childhood educator or new to the profession, your passion, resilience, and commitment to the well-being and development of young children are truly commendable. Your work is invaluable, and your impact is immeasurable. Thank you for everything you do to make a difference in the lives of children each and every day.”

Today’s Mental Health Awareness Month tip comes from Malisa Rader, Instructor in the School of Education:

“Limit Exposure to Stressors. Do this by setting boundaries with work, social media, and news. Unplug when needed. Surround yourself with others who are positive and lift you up.”

As we celebrate the incredible contributions of nurses everywhere this Nurses Week, we want to extend a heartfelt thank you to our Twin Cities Graduation Keynote Speaker, Yinka Ajose! Yinka has devoted her nursing career to improving the health of others. She currently serves as the Senior Director of Clinical Operations at Children’s Minnesota.

Yinka, your inspiring message about trusting in oneself and others, along with the importance of representation in the nursing workforce deeply resonated with our graduates. Thank you for exemplifying the kind of nurse we want all our graduates to aspire to become.

In honor of Yinka and her impactful address, Rasmussen will be making a donation to the Children’s Minnesota Foundation, a nonprofit health system that ensures children receive the highest quality care, treatments, and family support, regardless of their financial circumstances.
