HPU nursing students
recently supported the windward Hawai‘i Loa campus Blood
Drive. The students generated enough pints of blood for the
Blood Bank of Hawai‘i to save as many as 126 lives.
HPU nursing students, represented by the Student Nurses Association,
are to be commended for all they do in the name of community
outreach, awareness, and health promotion,” said Dr. Randy
Caine, dean of the HPU School of Nursing.
The Student Nurses Association at HPU fosters the professional
development of nursing students throughout their education. As
a member organization of both the Hawai‘i Student Nurses
Association and the National Student Nurses Association, these
future nurses develop leadership skills through various community
HPU nursing student Kristin Uyehara was one of many students
to donate her time and blood during the recent blood drive. “It
makes me feel good helping other people and it’s so easy,” said
Uyehara, who has donated blood three times.
The time and effort required was substantial,” said Linda
Fulton, of the Blood Bank of Hawai‘i New Business Development
Donor Services Department.
It is truly appreciated, not only by the Blood Bank, but by the
many families whose lives will be affected by the gifts of life
generated by the drive.”
