Nursing students present Bio-Touch research

February 16, 2012

 Bio-Touch presentation
Seniors Vickie Bright, Enid; Dawn Randolph, Noble; Sierra Elsey, Mooreland; Meagan Allen, Amorita; Brandi Fisher, Mooreland; and Kristin Castle, Jet, present Bio-Touch Research to the Nursing Advisory Committee during a luncheon last week.  Senior nursing students take turns making Bio-Touch presentations, and hope to be accepted to present their research in Chicago and Brisbane, Australia, later this year.

Students from the Division of Nursing at Northwestern Oklahoma State University have been presenting their Bio-Touch research at various venues, and have submitted a proposal for presentation to Sigma Theta Tau International in Brisbane, Australia, in late July or early August.

Senior nursing students involved in directing this effort are Grant Frownfelter of Enid, Meagan Allen of Amorita, and Sierra Elsey of Mooreland.

Bio-Touch is a simple, hands-on healing technique that can be used to address a number of health concerns. Northwestern's Division of Nursing is the only program in the country that certifies its students in Bio-Touch.

Students already have presented to the Alva Kiwanis Club, the Nursing Advisory Committee and to Farm Bureau in Nash. They will travel to Tulsa to present at the Bachelor of Science in Nursing deans and directors joint meeting with Institute for Oklahoma Nursing Education and Associate Degree in Nursing directors.

A proposal has been submitted to speak at the Midwest Business Administration Association in Chicago on March 30.

Nursing students are fundraising for their trips and hope to be accepted to present in Chicago and Brisbane, Australia.
