The Day in the Life of a Rural Nurse

“The Day in the Life of a Rural Nurse is an authentic and realistic representation of rural nursing. For most undergraduate nursing students, understanding the role of a rural nurse is not possible to experience during their program and can be difficult to imagine,” said CON Associate Professor (Clinical) Jennifer Macali, DNP, RN, MPH. “Not only will students have a clear understanding of the wide array of opportunities to serve as a nurse in rural communities, but they will gain a wider perspective how the health care system is connected across the continuum of care. This video is an invaluable educational tool that has the potential to change the career trajectory of a future nurse.” from video introduction
