The Patty Hanks Shelton School of Nursing will visit 13 rural school districts this semester administering uninsured or underinsured children with vaccinations provided by the state.
The school has its highest student count to date - 148. Students get almost 24 hours of total training qualifying them to provide these services.
The unique program has gone on for six years and Monica Smolen, a nursing instructor, believes it's had a huge impact on the community and the students enrolled.
Students will start the immunization outreach program on Feb. 10.
