    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.
