MSMC Nursing students went to Spain!

MSMC Nursing students visited the Centro Regional de Transfusión Sanguínea and the Banco de Tejidos in Seville. They had first-hand experience—literally—of the blood and organ donation process in the Centro Regional. According to Erin McCann, a Mount Nursing student, “This is Christmas!”
