NEWBURGH, N.Y. -
About a dozen Nursing candidates attended the first “Men in Nursing” event last semester. Daniel J. Maughan ’02 (lower right), Senior Vice President for Transformation at Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital, acted as a mentor to the group.
About a dozen men in Mount Saint Mary College’s Nursing program sharpened their professional skills at the college’s first “Men in Nursing” workshop.
In attendance as a mentor was Mount alumnus Daniel J. Maughan ’02, MSN, MBA, RN, FNP-C, Senior Vice President for Transformation at Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital.
The main topic of discussion was helping the nurses-to-be in developing healthy coping skills. When patients pass away, it can weigh heavily on not only their families, but also their caregivers as well.
“As each student shared stories of why they wanted to become nurses, and discussed challenges, including dealing with the loss of a patient and many other topics, I was given the opportunity to fall in love with my profession all over again,” Maughan explained.
Through the Mount’s prestigious Nursing program, students enjoy state-of-the-art simulation labs and clinical relationships with more than 40 area hospitals. The Mount’s passionate faculty are dedicated to the success of both their undergraduate and graduate students.
