USF Nursing students make a difference in community health overseas
For most students, summertime is filled with lots of fun, beach, travel and fewer classes. However, nursing students at University of South Florida are staying busy overseas making a difference in community health.
Three groups of undergraduate and graduate students have or will be traveling to either Scotland, U.S. Virgin Islands or Panama to complete their global community health experience, an initiative developed through POWER with Nursing: Partnership Opportunities for Wellness, Education and Research.
Elizabeth “Betty” T. Jordan, DNSc, RNC, FAAN, associate professor and senior assistant dean of the undergraduate nursing program at USF College of Nursing led 16 students in their trip to St. Croix, U.S Virgin Islands. Connie Visovsky, PhD, RN, ACNP-BC, associate professor and associate dean for Student Affairs and community engagement at USF Nursing is traveling with the second group of students to Panama, and USF Nursing Instructor, Debra A. Gottel, MSN, MHS, RN, traveled with another group of students to Scotland.
