Nursing Student Clinical Rotations

May, 2022

As part of the Department of Education requirements, nursing students must spend a certain number of hours each year working in various health care institutions under the guidance of professional nurses, in environments such as hospitals, nursing homes and rehabilitation centers.

We were pleased to receive the following letter from one of the nursing professionals that guided our students during a part of their recent clinical rotation. They also pointed out the current dire need for more nurses.

I have had the pleasure to meet the students from your school and the instructor.

The students are so eager to learn and asking questions. They are a great bunch. They watched me change a chest port huber needle and dressing change. Also they observed me placing a wound vac. I wish them all the very best and hope to meet them again and watch them succeed as nurses in the community. We sure do need them.

Best wishes to all of you!

If I can ever help in any way, please let me know.
