King's School of Nursing offering a Free Women’s Health Clinic in Knoxville April 11

KNOXVILLE, Tenn., April 8, 2015– King University School of Nursing will offer a free Women’s Health Clinic on Saturday, April 11, 2015 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church in Knoxville, Tenn.

The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) students, who are seeking to become Family Nurse Practitioners (FNP), will be hosting the Women’s Health Clinic for the greater Knoxville area. The FNP students at King University’s Hardin Valley location in Knoxville will provide free health screenings, information promoting health and education, and offer referrals.

“Our nursing students are called to serve others; this free health fair is one example of their commitment to the Knoxville community,” said Kristi Reynolds, assistant vice president of GPS Enrollment Management for Knoxville. “King University offers baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral nursing programs at the West Knoxville Hardin Valley campus. An important distinction to our nursing programs is the time and effort faculty take to prepare our students for life’s mission field.”

King’s School of Nursing has incorporated service-learning into the curriculum for all nursing students. The Women’s Health Clinic will fulfill a service-learning project in which all nursing students participate during their matriculation at King.

“Service learning is a great way to demonstrate our commitment to serve others as Christ has called each of us to do. The students learn through serving others that they too are reciprocally blessed beyond measure,” said Cecelia Lynn Holden, DNP, MEd, MSN, RN, CEN, dean of King’s School of Nursing.

During the Women’s Health Clinic, Knoxville Comprehensive Breast Center will provide mobile mammography with a scheduled appointment. To schedule a mobile mammogram with Knoxville Comprehensive Breast Center contact Nancy Oritz at 865.583.1003.
