Dr. Rahshida Atkins Publishes on Service Learning

Dr. Rahshida Atkins published an article in the Journal of Pediatric Nursing with Tami Jakubowski and Madeline McSweeney. You can find the article Service learning: Nursing students’ civic engagement with diverse populations of children with special needs here.

“Purpose: There is limited knowledge of nursing students’ perspectives about engagement with special needs populations. The purpose of this study was to identify the advantages/benefits and disadvantages/challenges of nursing students’ engagement experience with children with special mental and physical disabilities. Recommendations to enhance student engagement experiences were also provided.”

Join us in celebrating Dr. Atkins’ work. We are excited for her Advanced Community Engaged Learning class “Diversity, Culture, and Health Equity: Concepts, Linguistics, Ethics and Theories” this Winter 2023.
