Maternal Child Health Program

 

On occasion we have opened our doors to the student nurses from Brown Mackie College, located in Merrillville Indiana. Through the mentoring rotation of their course, they have come to our East Chicago office to experience a different side of nursing.

 

The student nurses spend an average of ninety hours with us. This is usually completed in less than three weeks. They shadow the community health worker and the prenatal care coordinators and get the opportunity to see that nursing is not only in a hospital setting.

While at our office they are a great asset when it comes to getting all of our materials ready for our new enrollees. This includes: putting together client charts, educational packets, making copies of all necessary materials, and even passing out flyers throughout the community. We also found them to be a great help in the preparation of our community baby showers. Thank you to all the student nurses from Brown Mackie College!
