This post is written by guest writer, Dr. Susie Hutchins.

Oftentimes, young children do not know the role of a nurse, or how to go about the process of becoming a nurse. This past month MEPN and NP students hosted a Girl Scout Troop in the Simulation Center to expose young people to the career of the nurse.

The theme for the day was:

You can be a —- Nurse!

The attendees included Girl Scouts at the Cadette level (6th-8th grade), as well as Senior Girl Scouts (9th-12th grade).  A total of 15 Girl Scouts, under the leader ship of Michaela Butler (STEAM Program Specialist), attended the program. The Girl Scouts rotated through 9 stations with students manning or co-manning the experience.

Many thanks to the following student volunteers:

 Birthing Noelle: Tina Chung

SIM Man: Hezekiah O’Neal

Black light and hand washing: Bessie Coronado Vigil

Pen light and eye dilation: Annette Diaz-Santana

Injections: Patrick Humphries & Kaylyn Lavalle

Quick dressing change: Brooke Holyfield & Mary Berberian

Vital Signs: Aishvarya Setlur

Protective equipment: Megan Yap

Eye exams:  Cynthia Uribe-Sagrero (NP student)

The morning ended with a game called: “Name that Body Part“.  There were several Girl Scout winners who were thrilled to receive a prize.
