Jersey College Mission Trip to Castañer Puerto Rico

A group of 8 students and alumni representing each of Jersey College’s six campuses throughout New Jersey and Florida traveled to Castañer, Puerto Rico on a nursing mission trip from May 5 to May 11, 2019. The small village of Castañer was severely impacted by Hurricane Maria in 2017 that left thousands of people dead across Puerto Rico, wiped away homes and farms, and destroyed the electrical grid. In Puerto Rico, each student and alumni mentor spent time at Hospital General Castañer assisting doctors and nurses in areas such as Emergency Room triage, Pediatrics, and Infection Control. Students also had an opportunity to assist the community through home care visits with the Medical Director and Nurses from Hospital General Castañer.


After returning from the Mission Trip, student Brandon Joseph shared that:

“The mission trip was a tremendous experience to learn, test my skills and collaborate with a different health care system. The staff at Castañer General Hospital was amazingly open and patient with us in educating and interacting with patients. The biggest thing I took away was how closely the hospital was connected to the surrounding community and that connection is something I wanted to bring back with me and incorporate into my career.”

To be selected for the trip, nursing students from Jersey College submitted essays explaining how they’ve demonstrated Jersey College’s values of “PRIDE” (Professionalism, Respect, Integrity, Diversity, and Excellence).

See what our Mission Trip participants had to say:
