FERNDALE, Mich. – Credit Union ONE is doing its part to stave the current nursing shortage. The $695 million credit union has recently sponsored two Detroit High School students who spent their summer experiencing the rewards and challenges of nursing during the Detroit High School Minority Student Oncology Nurse Mentorship Program at the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute. As part of the program students learn about various aspects of oncology nursing- outpatient chemotherapy, surgery and hospice as well as patient and community education. In addition, they are taught basic nursing skills and general cancer information as part of a short daily lecture series. “There is a severe shortage of nurses across the country and this new program will help us directly address that problem locally by nurturing the interest of potential new cancer nurses from metro Detroit’s minority populations,” said Karmanos Cancer Institute Vice President of Cancer Patient Services Karen Goldman. “It’s a great way to get more students interested in nursing careers by showing them first hand the unique importance of cancer nurses and the variety of healing work they do.”
