2013 Mini-grant Project

Our project is based on developing a series of activities that mimic microbial-related infections so that the nursing students get to apply their conceptual knowledge to real life situations. Each topic will be treated as a case study and a maximum of 15 cases will be used throughout the semester, with each case highlighting a specific concept. Microbiology and Immunology for nurses is a course that is part of a 3 year career Nursing Program at the College level. This is a joint project between Champlain Regional College St-Lambert and our Lennoxville sister Campus, where the Nursing Program is also taught …
