An innovative partnership between a college of nursing and local parochial schools provided opportunities for nursing students to offer basic health promotion and disease prevention services, provide health education, and participate in a service-learning, research endeavor. This partnership provided the nursing school with the ability to incorporate Catholic Social Teaching into the curriculum and actively live out the university and Catholic mission of service to others. This clinical experience has gone beyond the boundaries of traditional clinical education and provided students the opportunity to contemplate and put into practice Ignatian values. These values serve as the educational foundation for lifelong reflection and service. This article shows how the close alignment of Ignatian values and professional expectations and standards for nursing have been integrated in the clinical setting while promoting the health of children in various schools throughout a community.
