A New Rotation for Some Nursing Students

CRYSTAL LAKE, Ill. -- Every fall nursing students from McHenry County College’s Nursing Program participate in a rotation at Pioneer Center for Human Services.
Pioneer Center nurses mentor the students for the one-day rotation working with individuals with developmental disabilities. Throughout the day, staff nurses educate and guide students through a client’s health assessments to determine which treatments and services could be added to allow them to reach their full wellness potential.
“We foster the student’s communication and interaction with our individuals who may have deficits in verbal skills or social anxiety,” said Sarah Walker, Nurse Manager for Pioneer Center.
