Ryan, who won the award for best student poster for her work entitled "High Frequency Problems in Patients Hospitalized for the First Time with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease," worked with assistant professor of adult health Jane Flanagan.

Long and Johnson worked with professor of adult health Sister Callista Roy to update the literature review of accredited nursing degree programs that use the Roy Adaptation Model in theory teaching. Their poster was entitled "Nursing Theory Based Research: Useful or Passe?"

The three Elizabeths are all participants in the Undergraduate Research Fellows Program, which enables selected students to gain firsthand experience in scholarly work by participating with a faculty member on a research project.
