Fairfield University Students Complete Geriatric Rotation at Bishop Wicke


Shelton, CT (November 30, 2016) - Wesley Village, a campus of senior living and care communities located in Shelton, CT, bids farewell to their current class of Fairfield University nursing students. For six weeks, Bishop Wicke Health and Rehabilitation Center, a skilled nursing and rehab center located on the Wesley Village campus, has served as a geriatric clinical training site for Fairfield University students. Erica Wuchiski, Clinical Placement Coordinator at Fairfield University, explains “It is wonderful that our school has partnered with Bishop Wicke to enhance the learning process of the nursing students.” Since 2013, Bishop Wicke has served as a clinical setting for Fairfield University students, equipping them with the skills and experience necessary to thrive in the healthcare field. This particular program is unique because it offers its 4 year nursing students the opportunity to start their clinical rotations in the fall of their sophomore year unlike many other college programs.

These nursing students are not only learning at Bishop Wicke, but also spreading joy throughout the community. Residents and staff agree that it is really special to work with these eager and energetic students. Siv Kloter, a Certified Nursing Assistant at Bishop Wicke, explains, “They are a very motivated group of ladies, competent in their field. They are going to make great nurses!"

Bishop Wicke, recently recognized by US News and Report as one of the top nursing homes in the state for 2016-17, is proud to model a relationship-centered approach to care and partners with area colleges and universities to provide educational experiences for students in the healthcare field. In addition to Fairfield University, Bishop Wicke works with Certified Nursing Assistant students from Griffin Hospital, occupational therapist students from Housatonic Community College, and various students from Lincoln Technical Institute.
