Over 100 nursing students of the Hyacinth Chen School of Nursing at Northern Caribbean University (NCU) benefited from the Nurses Treat yesterday, October 21, 2021.
Associate Director of the United Student Movement (USM) Projects and Planning team, Demarco Robinson, said the treat was to show their appreciation to the nurses as they leave for their clinical rotation.
“We want to show our appreciation to them and wish them all the best as they’re going to leave the main campus,” he said.
Robinson said they distributed personal protective equipment (PPE) and gave them special treats.
“We distributed PPE, such as shoe coverings, head coverings, disposal gowns, litres of alcohol and sanitizers to the president of the Nursing Students Association (NSA) to be distributed among the students. We also served ice cream, cake and beverages to the nurses,” he said.
President of NSA, Debra-Kay Turner, expressed her gratitude to the projects team for their contributions.
“We are elated that the projects team from USM came today and gave us PPE and other stuff. We are extremely grateful and we hope to serve the students well with dignity and decorum. Thank you so much again, USM,” she said.
The event was not the first of its kind, as this has always been an initiative by the USM projects team for nursing students going on clinicals.
