Local nurse named to honor society

Sarah Osgood, of Brattleboro, was one of 33 students from Saint Anselm College in Manchester, N.H. who have been inducted into Sigma Theta Tau, the International Honor Society for Nursing.

Osgood is expected to graduate in May 2018 from Saint Anselm College with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Her achievement will be the culmination of additional schooling in the RN to BSN, a special curriculum at Saint Anselm College that allows a registered nurse a convenient path to acquire a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. The BSN credential is increasingly desired in the medical field, and is a professional requirement in some states. Saint Anselm's hybrid RN to BSN program allows registered nurses to continue working in the field while receiving in-class and on-line instruction towards their Bachelor of Science degree.

Local student travels to India

Saskia Bailey-de Bruijn, an Earlham College junior and daughter of Linda Bailey and Edwin De Bruijn, of Brattleboro, is participating in Earlham's Tibetan Studies off-campus program. As part of the program, Bailey-de Bruijn is gaining an in-depth understanding of a community in exile and issues associated with Tibetan refugees. Earlham is a selective, liberal arts college.
