Join the Nursing Program in Helping Memphis

Greeting to the entire CBU Community:

My name is Roslyn Nichols, and I will be graduating from CBU with a BSN degree in May. As a working Registered Nurse, I’ve never been exposed to so many community needs as I have while completing my recent CBU clinical experiences in what is known as the Memphis Immersion Experience (MIE). During the MIE program, RNs like me engage directly with the community of Memphis to serve those that are less fortunate. We dealt directly with poverty, homelessness, food insecurities, and many other issues pertaining to the welfare of the people of Memphis by serving in many nonprofit organizations.

After doing the MIE program, my mind was totally transformed and the words on the patch on my CBU Nursing bag became ever so more real as we lived out the very mission of CBU: Faith, Service, and Community. I never really thought about being a community resource nurse until I had this life-changing experience where I was met with so many people in so many different stages of life in such need for even the simplest of things we take for granted. After doing this project with my Nursing peers, we felt the need to come together as a community and give back to the organizations that we served.

This is where the entire CBU community can get involved in the mission with the Nursing Program to make an even bigger difference in our community with the various organizations served through our Memphis Immersion Experience for clinical rotations.

The Nursing Program is currently taking donations for the following groups: Catholic Charities of West Tennessee, Caritas Village in Binghamton, and the Alzheimer’s Daycare Centers of Memphis (which includes Dorothy’s Place and the Grashot Center). All donations can be delivered in the Nursing Program offices in Buckman Hall 328. We will be accepting donations April 7-17. All donations — no matter how big or small — will be a blessing to these agencies.

Here’s a list of the items most needed:

  • Cans of Vienna sausage
  • Ensure or other nutritional supplement drinks
  • Pudding cups
  • Fruit or applesauce cups
  • Small packages of peanut butter or cheese crackers
  • Snack bars and granola bars
  • Small individual bags of chips
  • 16 oz. Gatorade or bottled water
  • Individually wrapped snack cakes (such as Little Debbies)
  • Cans of soft drinks
  • Paper towels
  • Baby wipes
  • 55-gallon trash bags

If you prefer to make a cash donation or write a check to assist with this, simply make it out to CBU Nursing or email Stacey Trotter at to make a monetary donation to our cause.

Thanks so much for allowing me to be a part of such a generous community. CBU has done very well by me as I did enter to learn, and I’m leaving CBU with an even more intense desire to serve.

Roslyn Nichols, RN (BSN ’15)

This budget would decimate programs meant to help people in need. “Nuns on the Bus” received an avalanche of attention across the nation from religious communities, elected officials and the media. Simone has often been featured in the national and international media, including appearances on 60 MinutesThe Colbert Report, and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
