The Pomeroy College of Nursing at Crouse Hospital welcomed 18 fourth-semester nursing students into the Delta Zeta Chapter of the Alpha Delta Nu Nursing Honor Society on September 7.
Just the fourth college of nursing in New York State to start a chapter, the Pomeroy College of Nursing at Crouse Hospital is the only associate degree program in Central New York with an Alpha Delta Nu chapter.
To be eligible for induction, a student must have a 3.0 cumulative GPA; grades of A or B in nursing courses; and complete a service project. Students are nominated for membership to the honor society during their third semester of study and, if deemed eligible, are inducted during their fourth semester.
This year, the 18 inductees completed a service project in conjunction with the American Heart Association’s Syracuse Heart Walk, of which Crouse Health was a sponsor. They organized a snack sale, solicited monetary donations from family and friends and participated in the walk. Inductees raised close to $1800 for the cause.
The new members of the college’s Delta Zeta Chapter are: Sarah Fleury (Chapter President), Jennie Hasto (Chapter Secretary), Jennifer Becker, Hannah Clarke, Melissa Domroe, Alicia Durkee, Carlton Gates, Edward Halpin, Alison Hoyer, Megan James, Lauren More, Kimberly Morris, Alina Ninemire, Roxanne Schell, Sarah Steinberg, Mirela Subasic, Samantha Susice, AnnMarie Tagliareni.
During the induction ceremony, the students were asked to share their “symbols of nursing,” something that represents why they choose to pursue nursing.
