Student nurses off to practicum in Niger


For the second year running, a group of fourth-year baccalaureate-nursing students are participating in an international health practicum in Niger.

Under the supervision of faculty supervisor Joanne Gartner and public health nurse Lorraine Happ, the six students will be helping to provide primary health care services in a number of villages through participation in community health projects.

Gartner says the students will not only work with interpreters in the provision of health education to villagers, they'll also participate in such activities as constructing wooden dish racks, mud stoves, and latrines.

"They'll also have the opportunity to work alongside village health workers as they perform community health assessments, well-baby clinics, and nutrition teaching."

This year, the group will be posting reports and pictures of their experiences on website http://midp.alabanza.com/index.htm

In the url, midp stands for Maragi Integrated Development Project, the official name of the project.

The students, who departed last week, will be in Niger from January 20 to March 18, 1999.


Preparing last week for their eight-week practicum in Niger were (l. to r.): Brandie Cooper, Audra Wright, Erin Danaher, Lisa Moi, Twyla Vicary, Joanne Gartner (faculty supervisor), Kara Schick, and Lorraine Happ (a public health nurse). Helping to provide primary health care through participation in community health projects.
