Nursing Fellowship in Uganda
Carole MacKenzie, MEd, BSN, RN-BC, Lunder Dineen’s Professional Development Specialist, was selected to be a Massachusetts General Hospital Global Health Nursing Fellow for 2017. In her fellowship role, she worked collaboratively with Mary Sebert, RN, MPH, the International Nurse Program Manager for MGH Global Health, to develop a nursing leadership course to be presented in Mbarara, Uganda.
The goal of the course was to increase the knowledge and competency level of Clinical Instructors at Mbarara Regional Referral Hospital and Mbarara University of Science and Technology (MUST), enabling program attendees to teach and assist MUST nursing students in the acquisition of knowledge and skills in the clinical setting. The course was held during the week of August 21-25.
