Student: Amanda Gonzalez
Position: SHOR Speaker of the House
School: West Coast University
“The opportunity to experience the House of Delegates as a student was inspiring. I was able to interact and learn from experienced dental hygienists and dental hygiene students from different programs. Participating in SHOR as Speaker of the House opened my eyes to a future I can have as a representative for my profession. This experience has raised awareness on the important role new generation hygienists have to contribute ideas and continue CDHA traditions. I truly feel motivated to remain active in this professional organization!” #CHDA_Strong#westcoastuniversity#dentalhygiene#dentalhygieneschool
I gave my first commencement speech on Saturday. I would like to thank West Coast University for the opportunity. It is a great way to meet and inspire people. Definitely looking to do more of that in the future. #publicspeaking#westcoastuniversity#keynotespeaker

Over the next several days there are going to be record breaking temperatures around our campus locations. Please make sure you stay hydrated.
Here are some tips to remember from the @americanredcross -Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids even if you do not feel thirsty. Avoid drinks with caffeine or alcohol. -Eat small meals and eat more often. -Avoid extreme temperature changes. -Wear loose-fitting, lightweight, light-colored clothing. Avoid dark colors because they absorb the sun’s rays. -Slow down, stay indoors and avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest part of the day. -Postpone outdoor games and activities.
Use a buddy system when working in excessive heat. #Take frequent breaks if you must work outdoors. -Check on family, friends and neighbors who do not have air conditioning, who spend much of their time alone or who are more likely to be affected by the heat. -Check on your animals frequently to ensure that they are not suffering from the heat.

🎊ERIN CONDREN LIFE PLANNER🎊
So I’m in love with a lot of things but something on my top 10 are planners and first and foremost the Erin Condren Life Planner. I had one previously a few years back and then switched to the Happy Planner because it was cheaper but since I’ll be in nursing school for a while.. I decided why not .
I got the horizontal layout
Rose Gold coiled rings on the side
And the customizable “Marquee Cover” that says “Coffee.Care Plans. Clinicals.” Which will be my life for a while. 😂📖🤓 Anyways .... I’m super excited to sit down with a glass of wine and add all my dates in it tonight and fill in my week this week. Stay tuned🎊🙌🏾 I have a $10 off coupon if you ever decide to get one yourself LMK
West Coast University alumni, students, faculty and staff gathered this June to celebrate the official launch of a Men in Nursing chapter at the Ontario campus.
Hosted by WCU Alumni, about 30 people attended the party at Cafe Hildago in Fullerton. Chini Camargo, the WCU Alumni relations and events director, said the "Dinner and Dialogue" was a great opportunity for WCU alumni and future alumni to meet and network in a fun environment, while marking the beginning of a new organization that bridges the gap between students and graduates.
"This group represents nursing leadership and the future of healthcare," Camargo said. "We are so excited to have teamed up with WCU-Ontario Career Services to be a part of the celebration."
Founded in 1971 by a group of male nurses in Michigan, the American Association for Men in Nursing's mission is to shape the practice, education, research and leadership for men in nursing and advance men’s health. Adrian Robles, a WCU-Ontario student and the first WCU Men in Nursing chapter president, said the key to launching the group was getting "a lot of the right people together at the right time."
"The main thing that we wanted to push forward was the collaboration between the genders because you can't have nursing without men and women," Robles said. "To promote men in nursing more than they are now is great, but what's really special is to have the opportunity to network with all these fine individuals."
Guest speaker and WCU alumni Jonathan Llamas said that the Men in Nursing event was not only a great way to remove barriers between working professionals and full-time students, but also promote the amazing work men and women do as nurses.
"This Men in Nursing event helps unify the reason that we are all here," Llamas said. "It’s a great way to network and shed some light on what nursing is and to hopefully inspire future nurses to see that in nursing and healthcare you have the opportunity to impact people each and every day." #westcoastuniversity#meninnursing#wcualumni#wcuproud
