Nursing student gives vaccine

San Francisco State University’s motto is “Experientia docet” — “Experience teaches.” But when it’s nurses-in-training getting the experience, it can do more than teach. It can help. That was the case this spring when San Francisco State Nursing students used their newfound skills to help the San Francisco Department of Public Health administered COVID-19 vaccinations and sites throughout the city.

The newly released Spring/Summer 2021 issue of SF State Magazine tells these students’ story — and much more. Other feature articles spotlight a faculty member’s new documentary about a heartbreaking crime and a professor’s efforts to support young female biologists. The online issue also features a story about a pair of can-do students who’ve won seats on local school boards and research that could make the skyscrapers of tomorrow even taller. And as usual the issue is packed with updates and insights from the University’s amazing alumni.

Read those stories and more on the SF State Magazine website. You can also learn more about the awards the magazine was recently given by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), including being named the Robert Sibley Magazine of the Year, CASE’s highest honor for an alumni magazine.
