We arrived on the beautiful island of Eleuthera on Saturday afternoon and settled into where we’ll be staying during our time here, the Tarpum Bay Methodist Church. Sunday was spent touring the island, becoming familiar with the different clinics we’d be working at throughout the week and their surrounding neighborhoods and beaches. We also stopped at the Glass Window Bridge in the northern part of Eleuthera, a stunning part of the island where the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea meet.
Our work week began in the various clinics working with the Bahamian nurses, providers, and patients. We were able to become acquainted with the scope of the nursing practice in the Bahamas and were surprised by how great that scope truly is. Everyone has been incredibly welcoming and friendly so far and we’re looking forward to spending more time with them in the coming days!
