The students were required to have the PDAs for the first time this year. The students download free software off of the internet as an enhancement to their other course materials. The nursing care plan has been a com- puter-generated document for the last four years. With the PDAs, the stu- dents can now complete assignments while in the clinical settings. The PDAs can be tailored to the individual needs and functions of each student. "Drug and medical references can be downloaded onto the PDA. Students no longer have to carry books to the clinical sites," stated Professor Theresa Cowan. The students can also use the PDAs for schedule management and other tasks outside the classroom. Cowan added, "We have also used the PDAs to set up call lists so stu- dents can contact each other or the professors if they have questions." The GSC/WVU Joint nursing stu- dents are the first undergraduate stu- dents in the West Virginia nursing consortia to utilize the PDAs. The use of this new technology will prepare them for the high tech responsibilities they will encounter after graduation. umanities major grants, one on The West Virginia Humanities (:()Ullcil recently ann(raced the award of 10 new inajor grants totaling $94.258.
