DNP candidates raise awareness of dating violence

Nationwide studies suggest that up to 25% of college students report that they were victims of dating violence. To raise awareness on the issue, several nursing doctoral candidates in the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Program initiated an educational campaign at UDM for their social change project. The group, named the TeLL Team, includes Terry Ames, Leslie Simons and Lori Glenn ’87, who is also a McAuley School of Nursing faculty member.

After discussing the issue with various UDM departments, the team has presented the talk, "Healthy Dating Relationships" on campus three times and also at the Vista Maria Residential Center for Girls. The most recent UDM presentation occurred Oct. 23 and included a candlelight vigil for victims of dating violence.

The team has also revised the Student Handbook policy section on Sexual Assault and distributed it to UDM students this fall. Public Safety has included TeLL Team resources on its website in the Community Outreach section. A brochure and card on dating violence and helpful resources were produced and distributed on campus. The TeLL Team has written an article on the campaign, which was accepted for publication by the Journal of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners.
