During the Fall Break international nursing clinical experience in the Dominican Republic (DR), junior and senior nursing students partnered with six students from Campus Ministry to provide care, education, and service to Haitian immigrants living in the sugar cane fields. The nursing students were joined by four students majoring in biology/science as a pathway to medical school and two students from the Villanova School of Business. During their time in the DR, the students majoring in the biology, chemistry, physics, and business had the opportunity to see nursing care in action and learn skills alongside the nursing students. In this picture, senior nursing student Samantha Cembrook (center) and junior nursing student Rachel Seggel (left), teach Ben Kramer, a student majoring in physics and chemistry how to take a blood pressure.

You never know where Nursing faculty might be or what they might be doing to enhance the education of our students. Here, Dr. Carol Weingarten, 2nd from right, rappels down a wall with the aid of a trustworthy member of the United States Army. She and alumna Christa Gardner-director of recruitment and admissions- are at Fort Lewis, WA for an educator conference learning more about Army ROTC and LDAC, the summer Leadership Development and Assessment Course for rising seniors. Dr. Weingarten also gave a presentation at the meeting.

Villanova nursing students begin clinical experience in sophomore year. One of the clinical sites used by them is local Bryn Mawr Terrace. Bryn Mawr Terrace is certified as a continuing care retirement community, providing long-term care and short-term rehabilitative services to older adults, as well as personal care, respite care, dementia care, and independent living. Adjunct Clinical Professor Ann Scheve, MSN, RN is leading the clinical rotation of sophomore nursing students from Villanova as they come to Bryn Mawr Terrace to learn. She is bringing several groups of nursing students there to observe the practices of the nursing staff and to begin to use their own clinical skills and knowledge in the care of patients. In the sophomore year, the clinical rotation focuses on learning fundamental nursing skills. The nurses and the care staff at the Terrace welcome the students as they provide additional compassionate and caring assistance that is always appreciated.
