- Nursing students at UMass Dartmouth are joining the state vaccination effort. This morning, they administered vaccines to seniors at the Dartmouth Council on Aging. Faculty advisors were there. But they say events like this give students much needed experience, especially during a pandemic.

PAULA WALSH: It's been overall super positive, a great learning experience for the students. I could not be prouder of them. And it's really a wonderful community health and nursing experience for them to really be taking care of the community.

- So far, 40 to 50 nursing students have participated. And you gotta to think, Anaridis, that's really giving them hands on experience in their education.

ANARIDIS RODRIGUEZ: It's really good.
