For more than a decade, Regis has been serving the dear neighbor in Haiti. The Regis Haiti Project is focused on the advancement of nursing education and the nursing profession in Haiti with the goal of improving patient care.
Regis is also working on a clinical care and education project in Grand Goave, Haiti, with the Be Like Brit Foundation and Orphanage, and a Nursing Clinical Excellence Program at the Partners In Health Hospital in Mirebalais, Haiti.
The Be Like Brit Foundation and Regis College have partnered to support the healthcare needs of the people living in a village surrounding an orphanage through a clinical partnership that is caring for the men, women and children who otherwise would not have access to care. A health education program is also being developed to serve the community.
Recently, a team of Regis community members visited Haiti and worked with Be Like Brit. Read more about their work and experience.
Through the university's work on the Haiti Project, it was clear that a large gap exists between curriculum at the various schools of nursing and clinical practice in the hospitals and healthcare facilities throughout the country. The university and the Partners In Health hospital in Mirebalais, Haiti (HUM), are working together to develop a Clinical Excellence Program with nurse educators in Haiti to bridge the gap and improve and strengthen clinical education and care in Haiti.
