Keiser University Port St. Lucie campus Bachelor of Science in Nursing students have been serving as a valuable community resource by assisting with COVID19 vaccinations.

 

Led by Nursing Program Director Maureen Harry, the group regularly supports area health departments by screening, educating, transporting, and administering the vaccines. “We were delighted to assist with this important effort,” smiled Harry. “Helping fellow community members during the pandemic reminds us of why we chose to become nurses. It is our privilege to serve our community and to give back,” she said.

 

The Keiser University traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing program is offered for students beginning their first professional nursing program. Graduates will be prepared to provide compassionate, patient-centered, culturally competent nursing care to individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations in a variety of settings, using evidence-based knowledge and skills related to wellness, health promotion, illness, disease management, and end-of-life care to improve healthcare outcomes. They will practice in partnership with patients as members and leaders of interprofessional healthcare teams, utilizing the most current healthcare technologies. Successful completion of this program qualifies graduates to sit for the NCLEX-RN licensing exam.
