Nursing Students Awarded for Emergency Response

Posted: April 27, 2012

On March 21, two APU nursing students, Tomara Fuller and Meline Terteryan, received a Sacred Encounter award from St. Mary's Hospital in Apple Valley for their quick thinking, response, and assistance in a rapid response action on a woman during a post-op c-section. This award is given to those recognized by a patient or employee as going above and beyond the call of duty.

Fuller and Terteryan, students in APU's High Desert Regional Center BSN Two-Plus-Two program were with a new mom in labor and delivery who had an emergency situation. The students recognized the situation, called for help, and began emergency procedures, working alongside nurses to stabilize the patient for a positive outcome. According to the nurses, they both performed well and in a cool and calm manner.

Congratulations to Fuller and Teteryan on exemplifying excellence in nursing!
