Sophomores begin clinical experience
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.
