Villanova Nurses Promote Health

Submitted by Villanova University C

Students in the College of Nursing learn about health promotion and community health in their coursework at Villanova. Through global health clinical experiences like this one to Peru, they're taking what's learned in the classroom, applying it in a community different from their own and teaching members of that community how to promote health. As they are performing health assessments, and teaching health workers and families how to prevent and manage chronic illnesses with the resources they have, they embody the Villanova spirit with their love for learning and their commitment to working with other communities to improve their own health.
