Making Progress!

We had our weekly group meeting this evening and we are already accomplishing a lot.  Compiling all the little bits of information, assigning tasks, and getting plans organized are what takes up the majority of meeting time. It may seem like it takes a long time to get all our ducks in a row, but we're getting there! We have a few fundraisers planned thus far. We're going to kick-off our fundraising with a bake sale in the Union at UMaine on November 13th and 14th, where we will also start our Gift Card Christmas Tree raffle. We have a bottle drive planned for the 10th of November, as well as a Pampered Chef Fundraiser Mega Show that is happening on November 28th. Stay tuned for more information about our upcoming events and plans!

Belize Trip scheduled for March 3- 11, 2013

The University of Maine Nursing International group will be going on their 2nd international trip to Belize during our  March 2013 Spring Break.
The year group, thus far,  consist of 11 nursing students and one faculty . We have  started to meet weekly to prepare for the trip and to plan for fundraising.
The goal of the trip is to provide healthcare to a rural community in Belize, as well as  enhance our understanding of  global health issues.Our hope is  that thru this experience, we  can become more culturally competent and knowledgeable nurses.
