community service projects
division of nursing at California State University, Sacramento is
once again seeking community service project proposals from health
agencies and service groups.
Projects accepted by the division will be carried out by senior
nursing students, who must complete the work to earn their degrees.
Over the course of a year, groups of CSUS students develop, implement
and evaluate as many as two dozen projects.
Recent work has included developing curriculum for educating in-home
caregivers, a health promotion program for reservists and their
families, a survey of pregnant homeless women, and booklets on breastfeeding
and sex education. Any project that would provide students with
practical experience in planning and implementing a health-related
project in the community will be considered.
Project ideas will be accepted through Jan. 22. Detailed information
is available by contacting Nancy Beers in the division of nursing
at (916) 278-6714.
