Southeastern Community College Keokuk Nursing Students Performed Clinical Rotations at Memorial Hospital
May 16, 2023 Memorial Hospital

Memorial Hospital is proud to have hosted a group of nursing students from Southeastern Community College Keokuk as they completed a semester of clinical rotations. Memorial Hospital is grateful to have worked with these students as they gained valuable real-world patient care knowledge and experience.

During the semester, students had the opportunity to provide complete patient care under the guidance of Memorial Hospital staff. Complete patient care included administering medications, observing the patient’s overall health, completing various coughing and deep breathing treatments, and performing nursing assessments. The goal of this clinical rotation was for the students to learn day-by-day time management skills by effectively taking care of at least two patients at a time.

The nursing staff at Memorial Hospital truly believes that hands-on clinical experiences are critical to any nursing education. By providing nursing students with the opportunity to learn from experienced medical professionals in a real-world setting, Memorial Hospital is helping to prepare the next generation of healthcare leaders.

Memorial Hospital is also the host site for the West Central Illinois Area Health Education Centers (AHEC). West Central Illinois AHEC partners with universities and healthcare organizations to promote health careers, enrich learning environments, and provide professional development opportunities for students. These activities support their goal of achieving equitable health professionals and services distributed throughout the communities and regions in Illinois and nationwide.

If you or someone you know is interested in job shadowing, interning, or a clinical rotation at Memorial Hospital, contact Mary Jane Clark in the West Central Illinois AHEC office at (217) 357-6832.
