WCCS nursing students assist with vaccination efforts in Selma
SELMA, AL. -- Students in Wallace Community College Selma’s nursing program have had the opportunity to assist with COVID-19 vaccinations during their clinical rotations in partnership with Vaughn Regional Medical Center (VRMC). More than 120 students worked shifts during the Drive-Through COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic at Bloch Park.
“This is a historic moment for our nursing students,” said Dr. Sarah Davis, Director of Health Services Programs at WCCS. “They know this is a unique time for them to help the community and be part of the solution to help combat COVID-19.”
Being part of the vaccination process will help the nursing students hone their skills. “Our students are gaining experience in clinical skills that is reinforced by repetition,” said Dr. Jacqueline S. Moultrie, nursing instructor at WCCS. “This clinic is an amazing opportunity for students. We thank Vaughn Regional for all the opportunities, including hosting our associate degree students in the COVID vaccination clinic.”
Students will assist at the clinic on March 8-12 when the second doses are administered. Practical Nursing students will also assist during that clinic.
