Roughly 225 nursing students are contributing to the COVID-19 vaccination effort in some form whether it is paperwork, parking, or vaccinating individuals at Truman Medical Center in the Health Sciences District and other sites across the metro.
“As the vaccinations ramp up, sites need the extra hands. Our students get course credit and valuable experience in the field, practicing some of the fundamentals. It’s a win for everybody,” said James Spence, director of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program.
By helping administer vaccines, UMKC nursing students have been able to help hundreds of individuals.
