Morningside Hosts Palmer Undergraduate Research Symposium

By Alyssa Nehring–Palmer Undergraduate Student Research Symposium and Maud Adams Nursing Research Day is a campus-wide presentation day of student research. This gives students from all majors to present research they have gathered over the previous year. Palmer provides great experience not only those students presenting, but those who are viewing the research done by their peers.

Kate Mathes a junior presented a poster on Antibiotic Resistance in an Iowa Hog Farm Concentration Facility. Mathes is majoring in Biology, and is glad to have the opportunity to present.

“Presenting at Palmer was a great way for me to work on my communication skills,” said Mathes. “As well as spread awareness about my topic.”

“This is a way to promote research in all educational departments,” said Jared VanDyke, a junior nursing major, after presenting his research on Sleep Aids and Safety in the Aging Population during the Maud Adams Nursing Research Day. “ It teaches us to always want to learn more about out craft and become better nurses.”

Many students presented under many different topics these included Mixed Methods, Qualitative research, C&C research, and Quantitative research which were presented as either oral presentations or posters through the day. The best presentations, found here, were selected from each session by judges.
