Cindra Cochran receives School’s outstanding academic achievement award in California
A recent trip to the United States provided the perfect opportunity to recognise the achievements of a School of Nursing & Health Sciences’ MSc student.
Cindra Cochran, a senior practice educator for Kaweah Delta Healthcare District in Visalia, California, was named highest performing international postgraduate student at the School’s inaugural Student and Staff Awards in November last year, but work commitments and a distance of nearly 5000 miles meant she was unable to attend the ceremony.
That’s where Dr Elaine Lee, Associate Dean International stepped in – presenting Cindra with her certificate while on a December fact-finding mission in the state.
Dr Lee said:
“Cindra worked very hard throughout her programme, and it was a shame she couldn’t be there in person to pick up her award with our other students.”
“This trip to the US gave us a great chance to catch up with her, and to reward her dedication to her studies.”
Most postgraduate programmes at the School of Nursing & Health Sciences are delivered via e-learning, meaning students in employment or living in other locations can study at a time suitable for them.
These programmes regularly attract practising nurses and healthcare professionals from as far afield as Croatia, Canada, the United States, Eritrea, Australia and St Lucia.
