Nurse Educators Thank
of Nursing Education Linda Martin and members of the nursing faculty took
time out for a "Nurse Educator's Tea" on April 10 at the Conference
Center. They expressed their appreciation to their hospital partners.
Invited guests represented area hospitals that provide clinical training
for MCCC nursing students at every level.
Martin noted that
80 to 85% of MCCC nursing graduates seek employment at local hospitals.
"They wouldn't do that if they didn't have such good clinical experiences."
Added Nursing IV instructor Sue Minkel, "Our students consistently
indicate that they are welcomed, supported and guided in the clinical
setting by nurses who are patient and willing to share their knowledge."
In addition to doctors'
offices and pediatric clinics, Mercer nursing students fulfill clinical
rotations at Robert Wood Johnson at Hamilton, Princeton Medical Center
(including Princeton House & Merwick Rehab), St. Francis Medical Center,
Capital Health Systems (including both Mercer and Helene Fuld), Trenton
Psychiatric, Centra State, Voorhees Pediatric, Virtua, Carrier Clinic,
and Deborah Heart and Lung. Photos.
