Hands-on Clinical Skills Review and Simulation



Sunday, August 18, 2013


Thursday, August 22, 2013

The HSSC, School of Nursing, and Office of Academic Support are hosting four days of hands-on Clinical Skills Review and Simulation August 19th through 22nd, 2013. We invite you to attend and refresh Nursing Skills prior to the start of the BSN Fall 2013 Semester.

Each of the review sessions is open to students who have completed or attempted the respective course. Sessions are intended to support students in refreshing past learning, and not to teach new skills.

Health Assessment: 8/19 to 8/20

Professor Tammy Valenta is hosting a lecture at 9am in PMOB 4005, followed by practice of Head-to-Toe Quick Assessments in the HSSC Skills Lab. Spots are limited, so please register in advance at http://bit.ly/17j2bEr.

Med-Surg: 8/21 to 8/22

Four-hour hands-on review sessions are scheduled in the morning and afternoon. Skills review stations will support practice of NG intubation and management, medication administration (PO, IM, and Sub-Q procedures), and simulations. An optional Math for Meds practice exam will be available. Register separately at http://bit.ly/11mBsTc.
