(Last) (First)

My contact with this student:

I had the pleasure of working with the above student during the 2017 Spring semester at The University of Arizona College of
Nursing. I taught McKenna in her 2nd semester course entitled “Nursing Care of the Childbearing Family: Nursing 368.” This course
included theoretical concepts, principles, and techniques for providing care to the childbearing family. Clinical practice focused on the
application of theory and the provision of nursing care to women (gynecological, antepartal, intrapartal, and postpartal), newborns,
and their families.

In addition, I observed this student actively participating in clinical development sessions including simulation and lab
