As health care changes and shifts increasingly towards prevention, it is important that nursing education move in accordance with that shift. At Mennonite College of Nursing, we believe that delivering an excellent education to our students means that we stay on the leading edge of where health care is going.
The CAUSE project aims to:
Twenty-six percent of McLean County residents living below 200 percent of poverty are uninsured and the county faces a rapidly growing 65 and older population. At Mennonite College of Nursing, we believe that it is critical that nursing, and nursing education, continue to shift to a more preventative model if we want to keep people healthy and out of the hospital.
In order to accomplish this, MCN has partnered with three area organizations:
RNs will be embedded at each location. These RNs will serve as preceptors to MCN nursing student participants, allowing students new experiences in diverse clinical settings.
