"I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the water to create many ripples." - Mother Teresa
We've been back from Haiti for two weeks tonight. We are all adjusting in our own way, but it's clear that everyone has been extremely supportive of one another. We have had two meetings already to reflect and discuss ways in which we might share our experiences with others. Some of us have already donated our time to give a talk to another service group on campus, Appalachia, in a couple of weeks. Others plan to write articles about patient experiences we had in Haiti.
As we move forward through the semester, we will continue to carry the wonderful experiences we had in Haiti in our hearts. (We've already started talking about a reunion trip a few years down the road!!)
To our friends and family, thank you for your continued support as we transition back.
- BC Nurses
- For the past two years, a group of nine undergraduate seniors, four graduate family nurse practitioner students, two FNP alumni, and three faculty members in the Connell School of Nursing at Boston College traveled to Haiti to provide nursing care to patients throughout Haiti. This year, another group is going back! Graduate and undergraduate students, along with faculty and alumni, will be working in Haiti from January 5th, 2013 through January 14th. While the BC school of nursing has given us a grant for the trip, we still need to raise a considerable amount of money to pay for supplies, equipment, and another necessities for the Haitians we will be treating and meeting. We will be updating you throughout the semester and even after our trip on the fundraising efforts, as well as our personal preparations for this journey. We're all VERY excited, and we hope that you will be too!
