On Wednesday, August 1st the senior Nursing students from
Rasmussen College attended the Foundation’s
bi-weekly Health Education Clinic in Florida where they were given the opportunity to expand their knowledge base focused on C.difficile (C.diff.) Infections, Clinical Trials, Sepsis, and
Antibiotic Stewardship while utilizing their skills with hands on practice. The students add a new public health topic each month during the Health Education Clinic that benefit the local residents of Pasco County, Florida. The Health Education Clinic began in June 2017 and has proven beneficial to the local citizens to learn more about C.difficile infection prevention, treatments, clinical trials, environmental safety, support, Sepsis, and other leading Healthcare-acquired infections — to name a few MRSA, VRSA. The Nursing Students, with their clinical faculty member, introduce topics of hydration, nutrition, diabetes, hypertension, and display their proficiency in blood-pressure monitoring during clinic.
“It has been gratifying to witness the positive changes taking place in the resident’s health over the past year. We extend our gratitude to the Rasmussen Colleges for incorporating our community program into their student’s curriculum/clinical experience to learn more about our mission from our members and for providing public health educational material to the local community,” stated Nancy Caralla, Founding President of the C Diff Foundation. “The program is mutually beneficial with outstanding results being produced.”
We are grateful for Rasmussen College, and their Nursing Students, for the continued support of this community outreach program.
