Seventy-two nursing students make transition from classroom learning to patient care

The “share” screen’s upper half started off dark toward the end of Thursday’s virtual White Coat Ceremony, almost like a gloaming sky. In phases, on command, cameras winked on, revealing tiny images of Norwich University nursing students in their new white coats. In waves, members of the Classes of 2020, 2021 and 2022 formed a tiny galaxy.

The coronavirus pandemic forced health care’s practitioners to be both in and on. “In” as in office for visits, routine and emergency; “on” as in on camera, to connect with far-off patients who are checking in from home.

When Callista Lemieux was a girl growing up in Derry, New Hampshire, she often watched her older brother wrestle, something he’d done since he was 3. She said she remembered hanging around his matches, loving the energy and deciding she needed to take the mat herself.

“At one match, I said, ‘Mom, Dad, can I wrestle today?’” Lemieux said. “They said, ‘Sure, there’s an extra pair of shoes in the car.’”

Wastewater-Based Epidemiology Initiative’s interdisciplinary team tracks COVID-19-triggering virus

So far, many tests for the coronavirus have involved air, its main transmission medium. (Hence, face masks’ sudden emergence as couture). But an enterprising, interdisciplinary group of Norwich students and faculty has started looking for the virus in another “essential element,” water.
