"MUSC Nurses Change Lives"
Nursing Students Volunteering in the Community
On a brisk Saturday morning in March, several accelerated BSN students along with Associate Professor Nancy Duffy and former Professor Emeritus Sally Stroud provided foot care to 75 participants in the 50 mile MS Community Walk. Student volunteers staffed the Foot Care Clinic where blisters and “hot spots” with duct tape repair were the order of the day. Student Kelly Corbett worked with MSNA and SGA to recruit volunteers for the event. the organizers were thrilled with the students’ knowledge, enthusiasm and initiative.
Many thanks to the following student volunteers: Crystal Bell, Ellen Cary, Kelley Corbett, Chanita Coulter, April Dove, Kelly Hampton, Tiffany Jamerson, Valerie Kneece, Katie McDevitt, Brittany Phillips, and Shanice Strobhart.
