Filming student nurses taking care of the people in Kenya in multiple slums.
Chamberlain College of Nursing is offering an international nursing experience to Kenya this year to selected students. This program involves continuing to develop a long-term relationship with Family Hope Charity Trust (an NGO non-governmental agency) in Kenya through international educational experiences which focus on health care and cultural immersion.
The Kenya experience is a humanitarian immersion experience. The students will be working in a developing country in often challenging conditions. This experience offers a team approach providing health promotion and disease prevention activities in collaboration with Kenyan medical personnel. They will experience long, but rewarding clinical days in a very impoverished community. Students and staff participating in this experience need to be mindful of the challenges of operating in a country that is very different from our own.
Students will be involved in classroom activities as well as in clinical experiences in rural and urban areas of Kenya. They will have the opportunity to engage in a unique immersion experience not only involving clinical skills, but additionally incorporating the opportunity to engage in classroom discussions involving multicultural components. The students will have the opportunity to work with doctors, dentists, nurses and student nurses from the local community. This will allow the students the opportunity to exchange information on a national and international level.
It is anticipated that Chamberlain and Family Hope will develop long term projects that will benefit not only our students, but also the communities that they serve.
Through these experiences we are given the opportunity to deepen the students understanding of international cultures and exchange health views on an international scale. Chamberlain is one of a very minute number of nursing programs that offer our students this unique opportunity.
With that said, I want to film the whole experience. We tend to be comfortable in the United States and do not realize what is happening in the world. Yes, we as Americans need healthcare, but so does the world. I want to show others what people like the Chamberlain nursing students see and deal with on these trips. The challenges and rewards of helping others out of their good will. I want to gather supplies to document the experience and also, anything I raise over our goal will go towards medical supplies and equipment that would help start other projects in Kenya such as building a facility to have proper environment for healthcare in the future or something simple as a bathroom.
