Julie Postma to speak in Spokane on Tuesday


Our colleague Julie Postma will be in Spokane next week to participate in an event at the Spokane Regional Health District.

Her talk, “Assessing Public Responses to Wildfire-related Air Pollution: An Innovative Approach,” will follow a screening of “Era of Megafires,” a film and multimedia presentation.

As the SRHD notes, “The rise of highly destructive megafires – wildfires over 100,000 acres – has become one of today’s most pressing and complex problems.”

The event is free and open to the public, and will feature a facilitated question-and-answer session. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16, at Spokane Community College’s Lair Auditorium.

Information for All Advisors

Nurse residency programs for new graduates are competitive. Portland area is really tight with many nursing programs. We do not request practicum spots in the Vancouver area. There are multiple new graduate residency programs around the state, with many spots in Seattle/Tacoma area hospital systems, and also an ambulatory care residency at Kaiser. We discuss acute care and community opportunities in S2 (Nursing 409) with the students. The majority have jobs within 6 months, with more students having jobs secured by graduation than in past years. Students holding out for a specific hospital/specialty may have a delay, as do those moving out of state.
