Join Northern Arizona University’s School of Nursing for the grand opening of its two new simulation labs on Saturday, Sept. 14 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the NAU-Yuma Branch Campus at Arizona Western College, 2020 S. Avenue 8E.
“Anyone interested in becoming a nurse or in learning what the NAU School of Nursing is about is invited,” says Jason Bradley, assistant clinical professor and program coordinator for NAU School of Nursing at NAU-Yuma. "As program coordinator, my primary long-term goal is growing the number of nurses from the local community, who speak the language and understand the culture, by providing them with high quality learning experiences. These new labs will help us achieve this goal.”
Attendees can sign up for lab tours at 1 p.m. in the Academic Complex lobby (AC Bldg.), followed by the welcome and ribbon cutting ceremony at 1:10 p.m.
Tours every 20 minutes will include simulation demonstrations by nursing faculty and students using advanced patient simulation manikins. Three health industry vendors will also be on hand to demonstrate products such as simulated patient wearable devices designed to give nursing students a perspective of the patient’s experience, and a manikin that simulates maternal childbirth.
Light refreshments will be provided by Julieanna’s Patio Café.
RSVP to Nursing@nau.edu by Sept. 9.
