(Bluefield)—More than 50 Bluefield State College nursing students and faculty participated in an intensive “HIV/AIDS Clinical Training Program” at the College.  The program was presented by the WV Local Performance Site of the PA/Mid-Atlantic AIDS Education Center.

Jeannette Southerly, the site coordinator and an HIV educator for the WV Local Performance Site (WV LPS), and Carolyn Kidd, a WV LPS clinical nurse educator, provided the training.  “The program provided basic training information on a variety of HIV-related topics,” explained Julie Orr, BSC Assistant Professor of Nursing.  “The training is particularly timely for our students because it addresses the often-changing treatments of choice, guidelines, and medications in the HIV/AIDS arena.”

Sponsored by the WVU School of Medicine/Office of Continuing Medical Education, the program is supported by an educational grant from the Health Resources & Services Administration.
