Bolivia Immersion Lets Maddie See Another Side of Healthcare

Posted on Tue, Nov 08, 2016

At Nebraska Methodist College, it’s not enough for our students to just learn about healthcare. So that they get an experience that truly embraces the core tenets of our school’s philosophy, students immerse themselves in the healthcare field.

Often, that requires stepping outside one’s comfort zone and traveling to places far removed from healthcare in Nebraska and the United States. For students like Maddie, these moments turn into memories that last a lifetime.

NMC Lead Testing Initiative Fills Important Void In Omaha

Posted on Tue, Apr 26, 2016

The Center for Health Partnerships (CfHP) branch of Nebraska Methodist College is always on the lookout for ways to improve the health status of members of the community.

Recently, the CfHP developed a program that aims to fill a crucial gap in healthcare access and education in a large portion of the Omaha metro area. Lead poisoning continues to threaten children and families in their own backyards, but for years, there hasn’t been an organization that has gone out into the community to offer testing services to kids in need.

That all changed over the past couple months. We’re proud to announce that, through a partnership with the Douglas County Health Department, Nebraska Methodist College will now operate eastern Nebraska’s only mobile lead testing unit.

Omaha Immersion Trip Teaches Sustainability to Students

Posted on Wed, Mar 30, 2016

Recently, we shared word of Nebraska Methodist College students traveling to Laredo, Texas to help out Habitat for Humanity and make a difference to the people of that community.

But the students of NMC also do plenty of good work right here. Our Immersion experiences are dedicated to showing future healthcare workers how they can make a difference anywhere, and sometimes that means doing things a little closer to home.

A class of students actually just finished up their own Immersion trip in Omaha. And while they didn't board a plane to do so, their work still showcases the kind of dedication that our students bring to their professions no matter the locale.
