Nursing: Hands-on Training
Community Outreach


Lake Superior State University nursing student Diana Diemer gives Patricia Wyatt of Sault Ste. Marie a little hedge in her fight against this year's flu bug. Diemer joined dozens of LSSU faculty, students, and staff who volunteered at all levels to make the area's fifth annual community flu vaccination clinic a success.


Lake Superior State University senior nursing student Karla Lyvere takes a resident of the Tendercare assisted living faculty in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., for a spin on the dance floor. Student nurses teamed up with Tendercare to put on a Friday-night prom, complete with live music, food and formalwear. The nurses do this every year as part of an outreach project and, of course, to meet up with a few old acquaintances.

 

  


Removing her goggles and facial mask for this photo, senior nursing student Kristen Press provides foot care services and preventive teaching to her patient in the community. Before LSSU nursing students are assigned to work with patients, they must first successfully complete the nurse care principle tests in the classroom and the practice skill sets in the on-campus lab. All nursing services are provided under the direct supervision of skill credentialed nursing faculty which provides students and patients a level of safety and confidence each deserves.


Community Health Nursing Students at Lake Superior State University practice the “art of nursing” in a variety of settings! Here senior students Lorie Williams (foreground) and Melanie Scoles (background in white hat) put in their clinical time at the Chippewa County Airport. Nursing faculty encourage student participation in all phases of community health programming using conventional and non-conventional settings that could be used in disaster situations. Students get a well rounded view of the experience by working with community providers, obtaining patient information, providing the necessary inoculants and conducting time studies to help determine best practice approaches for communities to use in case of a disaster.
