USF Nursing students are using their healing power to bring hope to those in need.
Their dedication and commitment is transforming lives at Pinellas Catholic Charities Diocese of St. Petersburg, providing care to the homeless.
They do this every semester as part of their community health course at USF College of Nursing. Students meet with Pinellas Hope residents helping them with basic first aid and assessments, health insurance navigation and other health related issues. Students also educate residents about medication side effects, nutrition, heat strokes, smoking cessation and other health conditions.
