Abstract

This article describes an innovative community-based pediatric clinical rotation for undergraduate nursing students. Students were charged with conducting interactive educational sessions on health-related topics of interest to participants in a six-week summer day camp for adolescents of Mexican heritage. At the completion of the experience, students identified social determinants of health that impacted the health of the community and the impact of the experience on their nursing practice. Overall, both the adolescents and the nursing students benefited from the experience. Community-academic partnerships can be used to promote student learning while contributing to the overall health of the community.
