2018-2019 College of Nursing Senate Candidates:
I am Allison Bailey and I am a freshman in the Capstone College of Nursing. I am a proud member of Alpha Omicron Pi sorority where I serve as the Health and Wellness chair. My highest honor at The University is the opportunity to serve as a First Year Counselor (FYC) with the Student Government Association. I believe that my greatest assets are my listening skills and the desire to serve others. In FYC, I have learned a great deal about the legislative process and witnessed the passion that this team puts into performing its duties. From understanding the key issues that confront our campus to drafting solutions-based legislation for consideration, I have found FYC to be an incredibly effective vehicle for positive change at UA. I would like to take my passion for leadership and service to our University to the next level by announcing my intent to run for a Senate position representing the College of Nursing. As a Senator, I will be committed to advancing discussions on campus safety and elevating awareness of the counseling resources that are available on campus. In my opinion, the need for improving the physical safety and mental wellness of our entire student body cannot be understated. I am also interested in playing a role in evaluating ways in which The University might expand its study abroad programs and opportunities in my college. If I am successful in my candidacy, I will work tirelessly to fulfill my tasks with honor and integrity.
My name is Skylar Devers and I am currently a sophomore from Houston, Texas studying nursing in the Honors College here at UA. In my time here, I have been an active member of my sorority, Delta Gamma, a member of Greek Programming Board, a director under Academic Affairs for SGA, as well as being a member of the homecoming committee. During my time as a nursing liaison in SGA, I have come to realize that I really want to help ease many of the problems the nursing school and its students face as we continue to grow in size as a community. As a senator, I would work to better facilitate the transition between upper and lower division nursing, seek out more efficient means of advising, and continue to develop both mental a physical health awareness programs on campus. I look forward to fostering more relationships within the Capstone College of Nursing and working in stride to address our needs.
