Eliminating Misconceptions through Education

CASA of Madison County has had a long-standing relationship with our local universities to provide nursing students with first-hand experiences caring for our aging population. This past year presented challenges due to in-person visits not being possible. Due to the hard work and persistence of the CASA Staff and the university professors, adjustments were made to continue this clinical experience for our future nurses. Instead of in-person visits, students made tele-visits with CASA clients. This change provided new learning opportunities for all involved. Several students reported that the conversations with the CASA clients helped remove their preconceived notions and misconceptions about our aging community. Read below some of the students’ thoughts on their experience with their geriatric clinical through CASA.
