11-13-14-1They’ve traveled all the way to South Africa but still remember the needs at home here in Connecticut. To show their support of Dancer’s Week for Huskython from Cape Town, South Africa, UCONN’s Senior Nursing students listed above took this picture earlier in the week. They all will participate in Huskython in March 2015 which directly benefits CT Children’s!

This year sixteen Senior UCONN Nursing students are studying abroad in Cape Town, South Africa for their fall semester. They are attending classes two days a week at University of Cape Town with a UCONN professor and also have three days a week of clinical rotations in which they will complete their Maternity and Pediatric rotations. They will return to Connecticut in December.

The funds raised at Huskython 2014 benefited the CT Children’s Cardiac Wing. These guys are already looking forward to getting their dancing shoes on again in support of CT Children’s & Huskython 2015 in March!
