South University Nursing Students Spread Easter Cheer at St. Mary’s Medical Center

South University nursing students joined the staff at St. Mary’s Medical Center to share some Easter cheer.

Friday morning, members of the university’s Student Nursing Association brought dozens of Easter gifts to the pediatric emergency room.

The group’s president, Shayna Adaniel, said, “Make a difference inside and outside of the classroom.”

Both the doctor and the students agree that this kind act helps the patients feel better and get better.

Adaniel said, “That’s something we thought about a lot.” “That was really our plan and goal. We know, especially from a pediatric point of view, that it’s hard for a lot of parents to have their kids in the hospital, especially during the holidays.

Joy Stout, a nurse at the hospital who works in the emergency room for kids, said that things like this really help.

Stout said, “The happier they are, the better their mood is, and the more likely they are to cooperate with treatment and respond better to treatment.”

The nurses at the hospital and these future nurses from the college in West Palm Beach have a great friendship that goes both ways.

“It’s great that they already want to be on the team,” Stout said. “By taking part in this way, they can be a part of this team even though they don’t work here yet.”

There are things like a coloring book and a big Peep toy in the Easter boxes.

From now until Easter Sunday, they will be given to kids in the emergency room.
