Coronavirus Guidance for Students in Clinical, Field Work, or Internships
As the United States continues to see more cases of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), students will likely be affected both directly and indirectly. Students in clinical, field work, or internships should follow the recommendations and/or restrictions of the clinical facility. If a student feels they have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus, they should follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines (link provided below) and those of their medical provider. They should notify their faculty member as soon as possible to determine the proper course of action related to their program of study. Extended due dates for assignments, clinical hours, and allowance for class attendance should be given when appropriate. If a student is sick, they should not attend class and/or clinical, field work or internship experience. All students should use necessary preventive actions including: avoiding close contact with people who are sick; avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth; covering cough or sneeze with a tissue and throwing tissue away; and wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Successful AlumniAn internship opportunity led to a fulltime career as Indy 500 Festival Event Coordinator.
Applying personal experiences to the classroom“I use a student-centered teaching approach in the classroom, which simply means that students are encouraged to be part of the discussion,” she said. “I do a lot of hands-on activities and discussions that hopefully help students to grasp the material and apply it.”
Combining two passions“Beings a professor is the best job in the world – because you get to learn a lot about something you love, research about something you love, and then you get to go out and teach people.”
Nursing as a calling“I chose Indiana State for a list of reasons, firstly because of its great marks on academics aimed towards the medical field.”
