On June 24, Holy Names University's nursing department partnered with the Jackson Orthopedic Foundation (JOF) to provide a full-day Joint Injection Workshop. The workshop took place in HNU’s state-of-the-art simulation lab and was attended by students, faculty, and practitioners from the local nursing community.
Led by Drs. Kathy Geier, DNP and AJ Benham, DNP, the workshop offered theoretical teaching alongside hands-on experience. The simulated environment gave participants an opportunity to practice their learned skills and gain confidence in providing musculoskeletal services. Dr. Benham, an assistant professor at HNU, appreciated that HNU students were able to build relationships with local practitioners and observe the “commitment to lifelong learning that nursing practitioners make.”
HNU’s nursing department looks forward to continued collaborations with JOF in the future. Additional workshops will be scheduled throughout the upcoming year.
