The transformative effects of a college education
“Trauma-informed care is not about working with trauma,” said Dr. Carla Burke at the opening lecture for the fall academic year at the College. “It’s about creating an organizational culture and environment that is conducive to healing and does not re-traumatize people. This is actually better for all of us.”
TIME FOR CAMP! From July 21 through July 27, 13 BSN students participated in elective course Caring for Clients at Camp. As part of their course elective, they served as student nurses at Camp MITIOG (Made in the Image of God).
Camp MITIOG was created for children with Spina Bifida. It’s one of only three Spina Bifida camps in the nation so kids attend from all over the United States.
