IMU Celebrates Nursing Week with Events


Nursing Department of our Faculty of Health Sciences celebrated the Nursing week between 12 and 18 May with a series of comprehensive events. The event held in Aşık Paşa Conference Hall in our South Campus on May 17, 2019 Friday, the event was attended by Rector Prof. Dr. Gülfettin Çelik, Vice-Rector Prof. Dr. Yaşar Bülbül, Prof. Dr. Ayşe Okanlı, Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences, Prof. Dr. Mustafa Taşdemir, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, our academic staff, and students.

Delivering the opening speech of the event, Rector Prof. Dr. Gülfettin Çelik underlined that the idea in founding our University was to establish a primarily social sciences university, but at this point the University has flourished as a huge structure with eleven faculties in various disciplines including health sciences, social sciences, engineering, and tourism. Although it has not been easy to develop this huge and many-colored structure into its current state in eight years, given the recent events in global history, one could see that the world really needs a comprehensive and encompassing university with the mission bestowed by its name. Stressing the importance they attach to the contributions of our academic and administrative staff and students in elevating our University to its current positive state, our Rector congratulated all our members contributing to its development.

Video screening was followed by the academic gown ceremony for the promoted academic members of the Faculty of Health Sciences. After a brief theatrical play staged by the students of our Nursing Department, ICN 2019 panel was held and the top-ranking students in the ICN 2019 essay contest were awarded with certificates. The event ended with Prof. Dr. Sinan Canan’s conference titled “Humans’ Default Settings”. Throughout the event, two exhibitions at the foyer area of the conference hall, the Therapeutic Toys Exhibition by our Nursing students and exhibition of the poster papers presented at nursing student congresses, attracted a great deal of interest from the guests.
