Congratulations Regents’ Award Winners

Dear CSN Family,

Please join me in congratulating CSN student Adrian Edward Bell and CSN Nursing Professor Ronald Gonzalez for earning Regents’ Awards today from the Board of Regents.

Mr. Bell was awarded the Sam Lieberman Regents’ Award for Student Scholarship and Gonzalez received the Regents’ Teaching Award. Both are outstanding examples of the world-class, students first standards we rigorously follow at CSN. He is an incredible student, the first in his family to go to college and is a facilitator for the Nevada Promise Scholarship program, helping increase the number of Nevada residents who pursue a college education. He is due to graduate this year with an Associate of Business degree and plans on continuing his education at a four-year institution.

Professor Gonzalez graduated from nursing school in 1992 and has been a registered nurse for over 28 years. His nursing background ranges from medical/surgical staff nurse, operating room nurse, emergency/trauma nurse, IV nurse, and nursing administration. He has a Master’s in Healthcare Administration and in Nursing and was hired as a full-time Nursing instructor at CSN In 2011. He is the co-coordinator of NURS 101 Fundamentals of Nursing at CSN, where he teaches lecture, lab and clinical. He has taught NURS 115, NURS 205, NURS 208, and was the Program Director of the Practical Nursing program.

Professor Gonzalez has been married for 21 years, and his hobbies include playing the piano and traveling. He is currently pursuing a doctorate degree and names his parents as the inspiration for his dedication to his students and the nursing profession. 

Congratulations to Mr. Bell and Professor Gonzalez!
