I am the Director for the Office of Student Affairs, Equity and Inclusion. As part of my responsibilities I advise students enrolled in the pre-nursing program and teach sections of the Nursing 1100 course. I have been a part of the College of Nursing staff since 2007. My advice to new students is to ask for help early. Our advising staff is professionally trained to help students transition to the college setting, navigate the resources offered by the university and make referrals so you can be receive the most appropriate help. The resources we offer inside the College of Nursing include academic advisement, special programming, assistance with course registration and support through the application process whereas resources offered on campus include counseling and mental health, financial aid, fitness programs and much more. You’re well supported at the College of Nursing and Ohio State.

The need for human touch is universal among critical care patients and is an important component of the nurse–patient relationship. However, multiple barriers to human touch exist in the critical care environment. With little research to guide practice, we argue for the importance of human touch in the provision of holistic nursing care.
