Twelve Northampton Community College students provided supervised hands-on care for patients at Western Regional Hospital in Belize, a country off the eastern coast of Central America. Marie Everhart, nursing professor, and Nathan Carpenter, director of global education and international services, accompanied the students on their health care educational trip from March 9-16.

The students provided supervised hands-on care for patients at Western Regional Hospital in Belize, a country off the eastern coast of Central America. Nadalyn Imbriaco of Palmerton went on the trip.

The students assisted with wound care, administered medications, did observations in the operating and labor-and delivery rooms, and helped with childbirth and postnatal care.

In the process, they formed strong bonds with patients and staff. “The Belizean staff were welcoming,” Hampton says, “and the patients were appreciative.”
