Two BSC Nursing Faculty Participate in Workshop for Home Health Nurses

Bluefield State College nursing faculty Beth Pritchett and Betty Nash Blevins were featured presenters at a recent one day statewide workshop for home health nurses in Flatwoods. The program, "The Patient With Diabetes at Home," was presented by the West Virginia Council of Home Health Agencies, Inc., and the West Virginia Diabetes Control Program.

Pritchett, Director of the BS Nursing Program at BSC, presented "The History & Physical Exam of the Client with Diabetes Mellitus," and Blevins, Associate Professor of Nursing at BSC, presented "The Pathophysiology of Diabetes Mellitus."

Sixty-five RNs from throughout West Virginia attended the conference, and individual presentations were videotaped for future use as a teaching resource for home health nurses.
