Community Health Impacts the Community

As we sail through our fall quarter, I highlight our community health nursing students. We were given an opportunity to join flu clinics, as well as a great opportunity to pilot a new community health initiative in nursing clinicals with A Church of Love, taking on the role of Student Public Health nurse for a better grasp on what public health entails.
As we begin on this journey our hope is that we are able to serve the underserved with resources as well as share the Word as we partner with our campus ministry, Salt and light. I would like to thank our clinical instructor, Ms. Denise Waller, who is leading this adventure with me as she has the hands-on experience with public health. Opportunities in the nursing field are endless, and we must trust that God will lead where HE needs us.
In closing I will share this wonderful Bible verse:
Ephesians 2:10 says, “We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” We serve and volunteer confidently, knowing that God has prepared the way for us! God will reward.
