Who would have thought that the world's first School of Journalism was founded in the Heart of America? Walter Williams established the school in the quiet little town of Columbia, Mo., in 1908. He also established the Missouri Press Association in 1867. Both have played big roles in the world of newspapers as we know it. Graduates go on to earn national and international awards for their work in Journalism. In fact, several Missouri graduates have gone on to win Pulitzer Prizes and Silver Anvils. Media is evolving. Missouri's School of Journalism is up for the challenge. The school focuses on innovationthrough multi-media labs, entrepreneurship courses, and internships. Students are encouraged to pick up new tools including social media to embrace an ever changing industry. They gain real-life experience through the school’s nine multi-media news operations, including television, newspaper and online publications and two advertising and public relations agencies. Now that's hands on experience.
The University of Missouri Health System is a huge part of the state of Missouri's health care industry. And the Sinclair School of Nursing plays a vital role. The opportunities for nursing students at Missouri are like no other because of its partnerships with its schools for Health Professions and Medicine. But the list goes on. The school also has hospitals, clinics, orthopedic institutes, children's hospital, cancer centers, psychiatric centers and telehealth networks. Not only are the staff at Sinclair some of the best in the country, 17 members of the faculty and faculty emeriti are Fellows in the American Academy of Nursing. That's quite an accomplishment. Established in 1920, Sinclair is a premier nursing institution and fully accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. Sinclair is a part of an extensive network of hospitals and clinics in the area. Not every student who applies to Sinclair makes it through their rigorous admissions process. Those who make it are exposed to a hands-on learning environment with professional nurses, physicians and patients in real-life scenarios on a daily basis. As an official Research Institution, the professional staff at Missouri is committed to not only education and practice but research and service.
The best part about Mizzou that appealed to me was that we have the most clinical hours in the area. So we get the most hands-on experience. And they are all within our reach. They are all within a one-mile radius. I have friends who went to other schools (for nursing) and they had to apply to specialty areas, like pediatrics and obstetrics. At Mizzou, we cover everything from pediatrics to medical research in the classroom. We cover all bases to figure out what we want to do. Currently, I'm doing an externship at Children's Mercy (in Kansas City, Mo.) with the little ones who have cancer. I love it.
I think we're the best because of our methods. I got the opportunity to work at a community newspaper in college, as a student. My work went out to the community. It wasn't a student newspaper. I was doing my real job, as a real journalist, before I graduated. I feel lucky when I say I graduated from Mizzou. It's very prestigious to say that. It opens doors.
