University of South Dakota School of Nursing — October 2016

***University of South Dakota offers first foot care clinic: Dr. Kathy Magorian, EdD, RN inspired the USD School of Nursing to reach out to the world by coming to Guatemala and helping Nursing Heart accomplish its goals. They will be credited in this first trip with offering NHI’s first foot care clinic for diabetic patients and others. Later in 2016-2017, NHI coordinated two more such clinics. We were always greeted with gratitude and smiles. The USD students supported Chapina stove installations in San Luisito and offered wellness checks to primary school students in Los Jometes. We look forward to a fruitful relationship with these nurses and communities.***

Florida Atlantic University School of Nursing — November 2016

***This is the first time that our partner Florida Atlantic University came to Guatemala to offer a clinical jornada in the fall of the year. We welcomed this development as well as the lovely students who were part of this first group of Fall Nurse Practitioner candidates. They served [[[the small community close to San Martín Jilotepeque]]] and later in the week, we returned to San Antonio Aguas Calientes and provided the general primary care clinic and cervical cancer screening clinic to the people there. This was the first time that we welcomed nursing students from the program at Universidad San Rafael Landivar. This was a very exciting development for us.***

Florida Atlantic University School of Nursing — December 2016

***The wonderful BSN students from Florida Atlantic University came to Guatemala the day after their semester exams finished. This was an enthusiastic group of soon-to-be nurses willing to give some of their winter break to others. The group traveled immediately to Lago de Atitlán where they shared in Dr. Sinkinson’s clinic and ran a wellness check for the students at Amigos de Santa Cruz in Santa Cruz La Laguna. Then to Antigua where they helped ten happy households install high efficiency stoves, ran a wellness clinic at Jardín del Amor school in Santa Maria de Jesús, and offered a foot-care clinic to the women there. What a way to celebrate the holidays!***

Harrisburg Area Community College — January 2017

***The nursing students from Harrisburg Area Community College arrived in Guatemala on New Year’s Eve. They made it to Antigua in time to view the specular fireworks display from the lookout, Cerro de La Cruz, high above as 2017 began. Our friends at Asociación VIDA — Síndrome de Amor provided an opportunity for the group to return to San Miguel Dueñas to offer a wellness clinic. In Ciudad Vieja, we visited with our friends at Asociación Manos Abiertas. On to San Martín Jilotepecque, where our partners at Asociación Hombres y Mujeres en Acción helped us coordinate a school wellness check and review an important water project in El Molina. At Lago de Atitlán they participated in Dr. Sinkinson’s clinic and a small group checked out the challenging setting in Tzanjumel outside of Tzununa.***
