1 ENGAGING NURSING STUDENTS WITH LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENTS INDIANA IMMUNIZATION COALITION MEETING MARCH 20, 2014 JULIE ST. CLAIR, RN, MSN CLINICAL ASSISTANT PROFESSOR UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN INDIANA

2 HOW DO I BEGIN? Call the college/university in your community. Find out who is responsible for the community health nursing course Provide contact information What are you interested in having the students do? What level of students? Time/place/duration

3 TIMING IS EVERYTHING. Universities are bound by their academic calendars if you have a project it will need to meet the constraints of the calendar. I begin planning for the fall group no later than the May prior. Expect responsibilities of supervising students and providing feedback to faculty.

4 LEGAL ISSUES-HEALTH DEPARTMENT What does your agency require? Memorandum of Understanding, Clinical Contract of some sort most likely will be necessary. What is the process in your agency? May one person make the decision? Does this decision need approval by a City/County attorney? Approval by the Board of Health or other body?

5 University likely to have a standard MOU (or whatever the document is called by the institution) that includes language regarding what the University assures: Background check performed Drug testing performed students immunized/mandatory flu? TB test, CPR LEGAL ISSUES-UNIVERSITY professional/student liability insurance Agency responsibilities also addressed in MOU

6 STUDENTS What level students are you working with? What does the faculty expect-observation vs. participation? Clinical documents from the university may explain more clearly what is expected and competencies that you hope to develop in the students. What are the student activities approved with your site? May you supervise in administration of immunizations or other medication?

7 HEALTH DEPARTMENT Provide orientation/overview Even if unable to accommodate all students in a class, a group session will allow these students to learn about your services most of the time the health department is a best kept secret in a community!

8 STUDENT ROLE/ACTIVITIES What do you need from the student? Do you have any projects (grants for example) that will both assist you in meeting a need and assist in development of competencies. Can the student assist in development of educational programs/materials for clients or even staff?

9 COMPETENCIES What competencies are expected to be supported through this clinical experience?
