See It For Yourself: Haitian Nursing School

Published January 18, 2010 8:33 AM by Valerie Newitt

To all who have taken a personal interest in the Haitian nursing students at FSIL School of Nursing, the first BSN nursing program on the island of Haiti: I thought you might like to take a look for yourselves. Yesterday Haiti Nursing Foundation Director Marcia Lane alerted me to broadcast reports coming right from the school, now being used as a clinic, in Leogane. Go right inside the school's makeshift clinic by clicking here for footage which aired on CNN. Please note there are several male nursing students shown in the report. This is particularly meaningful in an environment where just a year ago one male nursing student there reported repeatedly being called "miss" because the profession was considered of such feminine origin. Perceptions do, indeed, change.
