Over the January intersession, 20 undergraduate nursing students from all three BSN options — traditional, accelerated and the RN-BSN programs — participated a study abroad trip to Monte Verde, Costa Rica. These students were completing their community health clinical hours, required for all BSN students. The group visited a health clinic, a nursing home, a hospital and students provided health education to older members of two rural communities. Along the way, they enjoyed the beautiful scenery and incredible food. Students spent ten days living with a family in the Monte Verde region and were immersed in the culture. While some students knew some Spanish before the trip, all arrived home with a more extensive Spanish vocabulary.
Sam Phillips, 8th semester traditional BSN option student, received the “Great Catch” award from University Hospital. Sam provided emergency care to a patient who was choking while he was working as a nurse tech and is credited with saving the patient’s life. Sam was surprised by the prize patrol composed of hospital and school of nursing administrators and staff during a shift with his senior practicum preceptor Randy Vanskike. Photos by Justin Kelly.
