NEW Corporate Website for SLC

Beginning this December, a consultative review process to understand the needs of all departments and services will be led by Irene Hernandez, project lead for the new website. Irene will be seconded from her regular duties as digital marketing officer; a replacement position to backfill Irene’s role on the marketing team was posted internally.

Several months will be dedicated to exploring what is currently working, what is missing from each area’s web presence, and what opportunities there are in this redesign. The new site will reflect input and perspectives from across the college.

“We know that the website plays a critical role in reaching prospective students. The scope and complexity of this project requires a focused project lead with experience in web design and project management, as well as direct knowledge of current SLC programs and digital architecture,” said Stew Clark, Director of Marketing, Communications & Recruitment.

As the project unfolds there will be opportunities for input. Watch the newsletter for updates.

Our Programs: 

SLC Practical Nurse Graduates are Above Average

SLC Practical Nurse graduates have beat the national average on the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Examination (CPNRE) required before entering the profession.

Of the 44 graduates from Kingston, 42 passed the CPNRE, which is a 95% passing rate and above the national average. Kingston graduates scored higher than the national average in nine of the exam categories such as critical thinking, foundations of practice and collaborative practice.

“The dedication of our faculty in ensuring that our students are well prepared is reflected in these results,” said Barry Weese, Associate Dean, School of Health Sciences at SLC. “Excellent graduates are the result of excellent faculty and support staff; their impact on student success cannot be underestimated.”

SLC’s Practical Nurse program is as old as the college, which opened in 1967, as a Nursing Assistant certificate; in its current format, the Practical Nurse program is a two-year diploma, and is offered on all three of SLC’s campuses.

 

Live Performance: Music and Digital Media

Join the second-year Music and Digital Media students as they present a Video and Sound Design Showcase, December 11 in St. Larry’s Pub, 7-9 pm.

The presentation of final projects for Video Production and Sound Design courses integrates elements of live performance with projected visuals. Students will be showcasing a range of experimental work using projected animation, live processing and synthesis, as well as multi-arts performance elements and sound-walk location recordings.

“Students have been working extremely hard on these final projects,” said Mark Bergin, program coordinator. “Since performance is part of the program, it’s really important to have this opportunity to develop students’ presentation skills.”

SLC Students Present Research at International Conference

Honours Bachelor of Behavioural Psychology students Jamie Hill and Brittany Dunn, along with professor Dr. Rachel Williamson, attended the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS) conference in November in Boston. Jamie and Brittany were among a small number of undergraduate students to attend the conference and present their research.

"Presenting at ISTSS as an undergrad was an invaluable experience. ISTSS was a very welcoming conference and a great first experience at presenting internationally. A special thank you our supportive faculty, and to the Student Association who provided us with funding which allowed us to attend,” Brittany said.

Based on data from over 400 participants, Jamie and Brittany presented a poster on the nature and impact of trauma caused by a persons’ own actions. Rachel also presented her research on how public perceptions of war relates to PTSD among members of the military.

The ISTSS conference is attended by leaders in traumatic stress studies from around the world. This year, clinicians, researchers, and other professionals whose work focuses on psychological trauma from over 30 countries attended to share cutting-edge research related to the assessment and treatment of traumatic stress.
