BSN research project contributes to innovative education
Bachelor of Science in Nursing students participated in an inter-professional education research project designed to replace the face-to-face simulation experience due to COVID-19 safety considerations. School of Nursing faculty and graduate students facilitated a virtual simulated cardiopulmonary arrest patient for students after assigning them various healthcare roles. Students participated via video conferencing and during the simulation, suggested patient interventions for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The School of Nursing and the Department of Psychology project, titled Student Perceptions of Virtual Simulation, will contribute to innovative nursing education during the pandemic times.

Nursing student clinical training continues
Dr. Tina Ho, BS in Nursing Clinical Coordinator, trained four new adjuncts who will be teaching students in our local hospitals. Due to COVID-19, students will be completing clinical courses in a half semester instead of the normal full semester. This will enable students to progress in nursing courses without delaying their graduation. After using virtual simulation resources this summer, Nursing will continue using these excellent educational tools in fall courses to supplement activities in the Nursing Skills and Simulation Lab.
