Nursing Students Without Borders empowers under-served communities through health education, the creation of networks to access health care resources and the distribution of material donations--while expanding the perspective of the nursing student.
We finished funding the creation of a clinic in San Sebastian, El Salvador, two years ago and they are now up and running! Our current efforts are geared toward raising money to fill their clinic with the medical supplies and technology they need to provide excellent care to their community. We have sent three trips of students down there since the fall of 2015 to strengthen our relationship with the community. Students returned with an invigorated passion for service and considered the trip a very enriching and memorable experience; the community really welcomes us with open arms!
We are also involved in our local Charlottesville community and hold educational and health promotion events for everyone from the homeless population to local children.
