The North Central Missouri College of Trenton SPNA (student practical nursing association) recently provided blankets to the Cameron Dialysis Clinic as a community service project.
Each semester, nursing students collaborate to identify a need within the community and work together to address the concern. This need was recognized by nursing students who attended clinicals at the dialysis center this spring and noticed patients frequently needed extra comfort during their lengthy procedures. The students collected the new blankets and distributed more than 40 to the clinic to be given to patients upon request.
“The practical nursing students in Trenton organized this community service project as a way to serve patients in the clinical setting beyond their scheduled time in the facility,” said Jaime Pittman, NCMC nurse educator. “Cameron Regional Medical Center has been an excellent clinical partner for our nursing students and they welcomed the donation to provide a special touch to those patients in need.”
