Thank you letter from Haiti

Maxdalina CEMÉ, our nursing student Phi Pi sponsors through Nurse Tim, sent us this letter of thanks...

Dear PhiPi,

I would like to send you this letter in order to congratulate you for this fine work you are doing to help Haiti. And I also take this opportunity to thank you for your help during the academic year 2017-2018 which was a success. I am becoming a good and wise woman because of this.

Indeed, I am in 3rd year, I begin to acquire new knowledge, and also to take part in courses in Petit Goâve Hospital.  I promise you Phi Pi chapter that I will do my best to succeed this academic year.

I want to become a competent nurse and care for patients holistically. But please know that my endocrine class is very difficult. I am happy that the FSIL nursing school teaching is very good so they help me. They make us work very hard.  Counting on your help for another year, I beg you, to accept the expression of my deep respect. God bless you, your organization and your family.

Maxdalina CEMÉ

As we continue to explore the NCLEX® Test Plan, emphasis will be placed on Psychosocial Integrity and Physiological Integrity to include Basic Care and Pharmacology. Teaching students to prioritize nursing care throughout the patient care experience will be a key theme as we consider these client needs.

  • Guide the development of a lesson plan by synthesizing Psychosocial Integrity and Physiological Integrity to include Basic Care and Pharmacology in the NCLEX® Test Plan.
  • Utilize adult learning theory to help students incorporate the client needs in all courses across the curriculum.
