16 nursing students from APSU participated in the summer internship program called Vanderbilt Experience: Student Nurse Internship Program (VESNIP) and two won top awards at the end of the program.

The program presented seven awards. Two APSU students, Emily Reeve and Leanna Swaney took home awards in their category. Reeve received the Credo Award for the Psychiatric Track, and Swaney received the Florence Nightingale Award, which is the highest in the program, for the Pediatric Preoperative Track.

This is the 11th year that the APSU School of Nursing has sent students to VESNIP.
