For many, a career in the medical field is somewhat of a higher calling. Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) student Kristin Corbin shares that feeling, which is one reason why she decided to continue her nursing education.
“I know it sounds cliché, but I originally decided on nursing because I wanted to care for others,” said Corbin. “I knew my passion was in health promotion and helping others achieve optimal health.”
A group of health science students will spend two weeks in the Central American country of Belize this summer.
The students will participate in service and community-based learning initiatives each day including health fairs working with an HIV/AIDS awareness group, volunteering to help build an orphanage and working with local high school coaches at a clinic.
