Nursing Science students gave free blood pressure readings at the Walgreens store located at 1601 S. Air Depot Blvd., Midwest City, Okla., on Nov. 12, and will provide the free community service again on Tuesday, Nov. 19, from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.
“There are multiple objectives for this learning experience,” Ray said.
Among them are introducing the students to the provision of nursing care in a community
setting as opposed to an acute care setting; practice of skills learned in class; experience in educating patients about their health; and introducing the students to service learning
as a “means of giving back to the community,” Ray said.
