If only you all could be here with us. I cannot tell you how incredibly proud I am of this group of students. Today we visited a nursing home. We danced, we painted pots, planted flowers, painted fingernails (yes even some of our gentlemen painted women's fingernails), and did make-up for some of the women. We took the goodie bags full of items such as combs, kleenex, nail clippers, deodorant, note pads and more. The faces of the patients were priceless. We were blessed beyond measure.
This afternoon we toured an school of nursing. We were able to sit in on a class-and even understood some of what they were talking about in Spanish. We allowed the students from Memphis and Costa Rica ask questions. Fun fact...they use nursing diagnoses here in Costa Rica too.
They had a great time comparing curriculum, course layout and more. Emails were shared by all. Such a fun time...
Here are a few pictures from our day!!
