Nursing professor Minnie Wood
Apr. 27, 2018

Nursing professor Minnie Wood has created a service learning course for her students that gives them hands-on experience with several community partners, including Helping Hands of Vegas Valley, Catholic Charities, the Salvation Army, Las Vegas Rescue Mission, Opportunity Village, and the Southern Nevada Health District, to name just a few. Students benefit from real-world interaction and gain a deeper appreciation of the community. Local agencies benefit from a capable resource of helpers, and UNLV gains insight and opportunities for research.
