Nursing Students Win Regional Challenge Bowl

by Tom McNamara | Mar 31, 2015


On Friday, March 27, a group of DeSales University nursing students won the 2015 Student Nursing Challenge Bowl at the Reading School of Nursing and Health Professions in Reading, Pa.

Teams of six to eight students from ten schools from Lehigh, Berks, Northampton and Montgomery counties participated in the quiz show style format answering questions related to the practice of nursing. The Nursing Challenge Bowl helps prepare nursing students for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) taken after graduation. The DeSales students represented all three pre-licensure Nursing programs at DeSales—Traditional BSN, Accelerated BSN, and Evening/Weekend ACCESS BSN.
