Dr. Nicole Masano has been teaching Community-Focused Nursing (CFN), amongst other service-learning (S-L) courses, since spring 2015. Senior Bachelor of Science in Nursing students enrolled in the CFN course are asked to identify a community issue and create interventions in collaboration with community partner organizations. In addition to teaching S-L course, Dr. Masano has presented research at the Gulf South Summit for Service-Learning and Civic Engagement through Higher Education in 2016 and 2017. She is scheduled to present another research project at the 2021 Gulf South Summit. She also serves on the College’s S-L Advisory Committee and was a S-L Faculty Fellow from 2017 to 2019.

“Nicole Masano has brought service-learning (S-L) to a new level in her Community-Focused Nursing course. Since the students are in their final semester of the BSN program and have already completed three nursing S-L courses, she has raised the bar of what is expected during their last S-L course. The students are required to write their own application for the S-L Mini-Grant and present their work during the S-L Symposium, equipping them with extra skills that are noticed during job interviews and applications to graduate programs. The students must determine needs in the community, find a community partner that aligns with what they have identified, develop and implement a project that will help meet unique needs in community nursing. Many of the students' creative ideas have far exceeded faculty expectations and show the level of engagement and innovation by the students and the leadership of Nicole Masano.”
