  • Nursing students experience cross-cultural clinicals - Hesston College
    accompanied the students Nurses throughout the world have the same basic care knowledge This was an opportunity for the students to experience nursing care from a much different cultural sense than they are used to Menno Clinic opened in 2002 as an affordable option for medical care Dental and eye care were added in 2007 The vision for the clinic was started by Dr Subbarao Doc and Olga Yarlagadda who wanted to help improve the lives of the people in their native country With support and fundraising assistance from the Emma Mennonite Church congregation in Topeka Ind and other Mennonite churches and organizations around the world the clinic became a reality Doc who now lives in Memphis Tenn accompanied the Hesston group along with Hesston College alumni John C Murray and his son John N Murray The elder Murray was lead pastor of Emma Mennonite Church during the clinic s early stages and now serves as lead pastor at Hesston Kan Mennonite Church John N is a youth pastor at Trinity Mennonite Church in Glendale Ariz When Menno Clinic was started part of the dream was to bring people from the United States to engage in the clinic so this was like a dream come true said the elder Murray who serves on the clinic s board of directors The people at the clinic were grateful for these students who took an interest in them and who they are and made them feel valued and cared for The interactions were a step in helping break down long standing caste barriers Grace Schmidt Wichita Kan watches a cataract surgery at Menno Clinic India The surgeries were 15 to 20 minute procedures performed with local anesthesia and at times by the light of only a flashlight as electricity was unpredictable The students spent several days at Menno Clinic working in a rotation to participate in different aspects of the clinic taking blood pressures and pulses at the initial check in helping doctors in the exam room observing cataract surgeries and other procedures at the eye clinic and in the lab and pharmacy They also visited local government operated and private hospitals where they were able to see the differences in health care between the United States and India and even within India itself The standards of care in India are different than the standards we follow in the U S said Rachel Tippin Elbing Kan I learned it s important to not judge the system because of its limitations and just learn as much as I can Government run health care in India means free health care but the students saw how it has greatly decreased the quality of care in government hospitals A lack of funds resources and staff make sanitary conditions and proper care difficult I was really struck by the conditions of the hospitals said Logan Duerksen Newton Kan They try their best to keep the hospitals sanitary but it s difficult for the staff to help people get

  • Experiencing everywhere - Hesston College
    opportunity for travel and new experiences her first commitment is to provide care for those who need it and to learn about the nursing field in different cultural contexts I go where the wind blows and the wind keeps changing direction said Rachel As a student at Hesston Rachel kept a busy schedule but found a balance between the intensity of the nursing program playing on the volleyball team and participating in theatre productions Volleyball and theatre were good outlets for the stress of nursing and all the heavy duty academics said Rachel Bonnie Sowers Hesston College director of nursing remembers Rachel as a creative and respectful student with a passion for the people around her and achieving her goals Rachel was delightful to have as a nursing student said Sowers She was positive engaging and a friend to all Clinically her patients and nursing staff also loved her After earning a two year associate degree in nursing from Hesston in 2001 Rachel got her Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from the University of Alberta Edmonton Alberta Canada She was drawn to the idea of new adventures every few months and began considering travel nursing as a career She could contract with a hospital for three months and then move along to the next place with new sites foods and cultures to satisfy her curiosity I flit around from hospital to hospital doing shifts in random units wherever they need me she said I ve done high drama nursing with trauma patients worked in public health care and in hospice The broader the experiences I can have the better The high adrenaline atmosphere of trauma nursing was where Rachel thought she felt most at home until she landed an ongoing job at a hospice in London The opportunity to explore other cultures approach to end of life care to adopt some of those practices and incorporate them with the holistic approach to care she learned at Hesston is what helped Rachel fall in love with hospice work Working in hospice changed the course of my career said Rachel I appreciate Hesston s approach to holistic care I have been shocked by the lack of empathy and sympathy I have heard from some nurses Patients have told me they can tell a difference between nurses with holistic training and those who had a more medical approach Rachel Neufeld talks to Hesston College nursing students about travel nursing Rachel has worked as a travel nurse around the world for 10 years During her time in Australia from December 2010 to November 2011 Rachel contracted with hospitals and a hospice in the northern coastal city of Darwin to maintain a balance of different skill sets I made an effort to learn a culture s view of death and dying she said I love to help people have the best process possible to maintain dignity reduce suffering and enjoy the time you have instead of fighting it Not all of Rachel s experiences
