BSC nursing students to participate diabetes walk


(Bluefield)—Fifty Bluefield State College nursing students and faculty will “go the extra mile” to do their part to stop diabetes.  The BSC Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) second year students will participate in the “2 Virginias Community Walk to Stop Diabetes,” September 26, 2015 in Bluefield, VA.

“Our ADN students are taking part not only as walkers, but they’ll also help with diabetes education and conduct blood sugar and blood pressure screenings for spectators and participants at the Community Walk,” noted Sandra Wynn, Director of the BSC ADN program.  “Diabetes is one of the topics I cover in the Nursing 209 ‘Nursing Care of Adults II’ curriculum and our students’ participation in this activity really complements what they learn in the classroom.  They have the opportunity to meet and talk to diabetes patients, interacting with the community.”

The “2 Virginias Community Walk to Stop Diabetes” September 26 starts at Jack Asbury Square on Walnut Street in Bluefield, Virginia, with registration at 10 a.m. and the walk beginning at 11 a.m.  Individuals and organizations seeking additional information about the Community Walk are encouraged to contact by contacting Bobby Cartwright (
