NIH grant makes STaRs of 8 Wayne State nursing students

An important goal for the program is to attract nursing students to doctoral education at an earlier age. Research has found that the median age of graduates receiving doctorate degrees is 47.3 years. Earlier engagement would result in increased years for productive teaching and research.

StaR students Lisa Bensmiller of Brighton, Kurt Omadlao of Royal Oak, Roberta Ukavwe of Detroit, Amber Buchholz of Dearborn Heights, Brittany Nelson of Brownstown, Anita D'Souza and Emily Glick of Troy and Cristina Miclea of Rochester Hills are paired with faculty of the College of Nursing and the School of Medicine's Pediatric Prevention Research Center.

Throughout the eight-week program, trainees spend 20 hours a week between laboratory and field work while attending seminars and topical workshops relative to socio-behavioral healt
