Four FSW Employees Recognized with NISOD Awards

APRIL 30, 2018 – FORT MYERS, FLA. – Four Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW) faculty and staff members have been named winners of the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) Award for 2018.
NISOD’s Excellence Awards recognize college faculty, staff and administrators each year who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment and contribution to their students and colleagues. FSW students and employees submit nominations for their professors and colleagues for this award based on teaching and learning practices that encourage student achievement.
Dr. Katie Paschall, professor of speech at the FSW Collier Campus, has received the NISOD Excellence Award for Professional Development and Scholarship; Don Ransford, professor of mathematics at the FSW Thomas Edison Campus, has received the NISOD Excellence Award for Service to the College and Community; and Sandra Seifert, professor of mathematics at the FSW Hendry/Glades Curtis Center, has received the NISOD Excellence Award for Teaching and Instruction. This year’s recipient of the NISOD Staff Excellence Award is Amy English, Academic Support Center specialist at the FSW Hendry /Glades Curtis Center.
“The NISOD Excellence Awards gives our students, faculty and staff the opportunity to recognize those college employees that go above and beyond their everyday duties in guiding our students to the ultimate goal of graduation,” said Dr. Jeff Stewart, FSW provost and vice president, Academic Affairs. “We are proud of the dedication and commitment these staff and faculty members have provided to ensure our students reach their greatest potential.”
In 1989, in connection with a University of Texas at Austin national study of teaching excellence, NISOD hosted its first ceremony honoring NISOD Excellence Award recipients. It has since become the largest and most inspiring gathering that recognizes the contributions and achievements of community and technical college faculty, administrators and staff. This year’s recipients will be recognized during NISOD’s International Conference on Teaching and Leadership Excellence in May.

COLUMBUS SHIPS PINTA AND NINA TO LAND IN FORT MYERS!

Fort Myers, FL. —On Friday, May 11th, the ‘Pinta’ and the ‘Nina’, replicas of Columbus’ Ships, will open in Fort Myers.  The ships will be docked at Pinchers Restaurant, Ford Edison Marina, 2360 West 1st Street, until their departure early Monday morning, May 21st.
The ‘Nina’ was built completely by hand and without the use of power tools.  Archaeology magazine called the ship “the most historically correct Columbus replica ever built.”  In 2005, the ‘Pinta’, also a caravel, was launched in Brazil and was the first ship to sight land in the New World.    Historians consider the caravel the Space Shuttle of the fifteenth century.
Both ships tour together as a new and enhanced ‘sailing museum’ for the purpose of educating the public and school children on the ‘caravel’, a Portuguese ship used by Columbus   and many early explorers to discover the world. Before him, the Old World and the New remained separate and distinct continents and ever since their fates have been bound together for better or for worse.
While in port, the general public is invited to visit the ships for a walk-aboard, self-guided tour.  Admission charges are $8.50 for adults, $7.50 for seniors, and $6.50 for students 5 – 16.   Children 4 and under are Free.  The ships are open every day from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.    No reservations necessary.
Teachers or organizations wishing to schedule a 30 minute guided tour with a crew member should call 1 787 672 2152 or email [email protected] .  Minimum of 15.  $5.00 per person.  No Maximum. Visit our website at www.ninapinta.org.
The ships arrive on Thursday, May 10th and there will be a private viewing of the ships for the media after docking.

Hodges University Invites Aspiring Nurses to Attend Informational Sessions

School of Health Science to host three sessions
NAPLES, Fla. – April 26, 2018 – As the demand for qualified nursing professionals continues to grow in Southwest Florida, Hodges University is meeting that demand with its Bachelor of Science in nursing (BSN) program. The university’s School of Health Sciences invites aspiring nurses to attend one of its three upcoming BSN informational sessions.
Hospitals and health care facilities are looking for qualified nurses to fill vacancies throughout the area, specifically those with a bachelor’s degree in nursing.
Jessica Palumbo, director of nursing at Hodges University, explains, “These informational sessions will enable prospective students to meet the Hodges nursing faculty who will discuss the program’s curriculum and format, which allows students to enter the workforce one semester earlier than other traditional programs. Students will also have the opportunity to tour our state-of-the-art nursing simulation laboratory.”
Hodges’ nursing program consists of two parts:

  • Earning an Associate in Science degree in biomedical sciences, which consists of four semesters of full-time study in the nursing track.
  • Earning a Bachelor of Science in nursing, which consists of four full-time, consecutive semesters focused on the art and science of nursing.

Students receive a strong foundation to continue their education, and graduates of the program are able to sit for the NCLEX-RN exam, a requirement for licensure as a registered nurse.
The sessions will be held from 5:00-6:00 p.m. May 8, June 13 and July 25, on the Naples campus in the Stock Building Nursing Lab, which is located at 2647 Professional Circle, Naples, FL 34119.
To learn more about Hodges’ BSN program, visit the School of Health Sciences at www.hodges.edu/soah/. For more information about the upcoming informational sessions, contact Maria Vacca at [email protected] or (239) 598-6285.

Valerie’s House Announces Opioid Grief Support Group for Children

New support group to meet growing number of community losses through overdose
 
FORT MYERS, Fla.–-Valerie’s House, Inc., a Southwest Florida nonprofit helping grieving children work through the loss of a loved one, announces a new support group for children and families who have had a family member die due to the growing opioid crisis in Southwest Florida. The Opioid Family Grief Support Group will run 12 sessions long, held every other Sunday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., starting April 29, at Valerie’s House located at 1762 Fowler Street in Fort Myers, Florida.
 
Guest speakers representing the Lee County Sheriff’s Office as well as those in the Addiction Treatment field will participate. In addition, a national speaker who has had a loved one die from a drug overdose will meet with the children. Area social workers will lead the sessions while volunteer ‘buddies” will assist where needed and provide care and compassion to the Valerie’s House children.
 
“The greatest fear for these families is that their children will also be drawn to drugs, either by way of coping or because they are curious as to what they witnessed when their loved one was addicted,” said Angela Melvin, CEO and founder of Valerie’s House.  “The curriculum we use for this group will discuss those fears and work with children and their caregivers so they don’t follow in the footsteps of their deceased loved one.”
 
The Valerie’s House Opioid Grief Support Group is open to anyone in the community who is raising a child after the loss of a loved one due to drug abuse.  The group is one of several different support groups Valerie’s House offers to help children grieving.
 
Families interested in participating in the Opioid Grief Support Group or if you wish to volunteer, please contact Laura Romig, Director of Care and Compassion, at (239) 841-9186 or [email protected].
 
ABOUT VALERIE’S HOUSE
Since 2015, Valerie’s House has provided grief services to over 300 children and their families from Lee, Collier, Charlotte and Sarasota counties at its Fort Myers and Naples locations.  As the first program of its kind in Southwest Florida focusing only on children, Valerie’s House provides a safe, comfortable place for children to bond, grieve and heal following death of a close family member. The organization’s vision is that no child will grieve alone.  Valerie’s House is a United Way Partner Agency and is fully supported through generous donations from the community.
