Nursing students conduct health screenings and present to West Allis Central High School students
On Oct. 7, students in Professor Janet Levey’s Nursing Practice V: Improving Health Outcomes of Populations (NSG4020) clinical course conducted health screenings and teachings for three groups of West Allis Central High School (WACHS) students.
Each 50-minute presentation addressed COVID-19 and mental health coping strategies to control anxiety and depression brought upon by the pandemic. Carthage students also provided health screenings for blood pressure, pulse, oxygen levels, and body-weight indexes.
WACHS students also had an opportunity to interview Carthage nursing students and ask why they selected Carthage and the nursing profession.
Prof. Levey collaborated with Evan Burlew, a health teacher at WACHS, on this important health screening and education initiative for an adolescent population.
Students involved in this project were Jordyn Bloode ’22, Kylee Olson ’22, Claire Rodriguez ’22, Noah Schafer ’22, Samantha Schuenke ’22, Alyssa Schwarz ’22, Wren Szeszol ’22, and Cecilia Urbano ’22. Prof. Levey’s service dog, Gilmore (Gilly), also accompanied the class.
