Nursing students provide medical services to patients in need
Each year students in the School of Nursing get hands-on experience providing a day
of free health care to patients with little or no health insurance.
It's all part of the Medical Mission at Home event. Nursing students work with a licensed
provider or faculty member to perform medical exams on patients. Participants say
the event is a wonderful applied learning experience and an opportunity to give back
to the community.
The event also provides patients with much-needed connections for follow-up care.
