Creating empathic nursing for children through service-learning has been a goal of Dr. Lydia Watkins since arriving at the College. She has been teaching service-learning courses since fall 2013 and reached almost 300 nursing students through these projects. In the courses she taught, Dr. Watkins engaged students in developing quality skills and teaching methods to prepare them for working with pediatric populations. When working with children, it is important to be caring and gentle because most children do not like going to the doctor’s office. Dr. Watkins works to help nursing students feel comfortable in accessing and evaluating the needs of these children.
