2nd Graders Visit Department of Nursing
On Tuesday, May 14, 2013 at 10:30 a.m., 18 second-graders from RMES marched single file into the Department of Nursing, following their teacher Jina Yoon. The class came to learn how our students become nurses. They spent time in the Skills Lab with Mary Ngugi, the lab coordinator, learning how our students get ready for their clinical experience. They also met with Gisele Kuhn, one of our faculty, and spent time with Bob (our SimMan, a high tech mannequin) to check his pulse and check breaths per minute.
They also learned that part of nursing was teaching about health prevention and promotion. In the end, some mentioned they wanted to become nurses when they were older.
The nursing department was delighted to be visited by the 2nd grade class from Ruth Murdoch Elementary School.
