Nursing Program Nominated for "Appreciation/You Make a Difference" Award

Posted on: May 04, 2016

Western Iowa Tech Community College’s nursing students have been nominated to receive an “Appreciation/You Make a Difference Award” from The Siouxland Autism Support Group.  

WITCC nursing faculty and students will be recognized for this award at the Siouxland Autism Support Group’s 2016 Appreciation and Graduation Dinner on May 12 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Northwest Area Education Agency, 1520 Morningside Ave., Sioux City, Iowa. The Siouxland Autism Support Group will be giving appreciation awards to those nominated for making a difference in a family’s life and/or in a way that benefits many people on the spectrum.

The Siouxland Autism Support Group includes parents of children with autism from toddler years through young adulthood and provides support meetings and other activities throughout the year for families in the Siouxland area. They also provide trainings for parents, teaching staff and care providers. 

WITCC’s nursing program and student club have been working with this Support Group for several years. The program organizes monthly visits with the group in an effort to help to promote socialization with the children and their siblings while providing respite to parents. A number of students have taken a special liking and commitment to this organization after experiencing an evening with the parents and children. Many students continue to volunteer their time through the Nursing Club by continuing visits and volunteering at events such as the annual Autism Walk recently held at WITCC.

Semester after semester nursing students offer their time and patience despite time constraints and multiple responsibilities. “I can not adequately express the pride that I have for these students as they represent our college and profession,” said Jessica Thompson, nursing instructor and club advisor at WITCC.

For more information about the nursing program and student club, contact Jessica Thompson at 712-274-8733, ext. 1824.
