Community Outreach to Various Populations Part of Nursing School's Mission
Students, faculty and staff who are part of the Case Western Reserve University Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing incorporate community outreach into their educational curriculum on a regular basis as part of the university's overall mission of valuing social responsibility.
The outreach ranges from sharing information about nursing careers with youths to training caregivers of elderly, from assessing health policy and finance among Cleveland communities to preparing to provide disaster relief across the country.
The Nurses Now Club sends faculty and students to speak about the nursing profession at local high schools, while the Discover Nursing program pairs junior and senior high school students planning a nursing or health-related career with mentors from the nursing school.
Nursing students also have an opportunity to assess the health care needs of the community by participating in the Senior Capstone Project. Read more.
