Congratulations to Andrea Normand, class of 1970, who was named the Registered Nurse of the Year by the Louisiana Nurses Foundation.
When Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana decided to open a pediatric ER, they chose Normand as its first nurse manager, and she remains there today, serving as a role model to everyone she makes contact with.
In 2009, Our Lady of the Lake College recognized Normand as one of its ‘85 Who Have Made a Difference.’ Her nomination stated “During the time she was Pediatric ER Manager, her unit saw exemplary patient and employee satisfaction ratings. Ms. Normand has mentored hundreds, maybe thousands, of nurses and doctors, serving as a role model to everyone she has made contact with along the way . . . She has always set the tone for nursing excellence by simply being on shift and setting an example.”
FranU has been awarded a $50,000 grant from the Huey and Angelina Wilson Foundation to fund the start-up of a new certification program in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). This program is aimed at students interested in providing therapeutic support for patients with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) within community health and education settings. ABA coursework and practical experiences will prepare students for Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA) credentialing. The ABA curriculum may be taken as an elective option for FranU students majoring in psychology, providing an exceptional opportunity to enter the workforce immediately after graduation. This gift further substantiates the University's commitment towards responding to healthcare workforce needs of our state and our community, particularly for populations in greatest need.
