Field Trip to Emory University to tour the Nursing Program and Clinic. We listened to a registered nurse, a professor, and an admissions counselor from Emory School of Nursing. We took a tour of the school and visited the clinical lab. Students were able to see a dummy give birth. The dummies were also able to simulate a variety of situations including a heart attack. Students could then bring the dummy back to life using an external defibrillator. The students also visited a room in which they could look inside each others' ears, mouths, and eyes. They were able to test reflexes. They also used a state-of-the-art machine that took their blood pressure, pulse, and temperature.
