Yearly simulation experience for healthcare students

By Jan Joslin | July 28, 2023

Each year, CSU’s healthcare programs partner with an on-site simulation, learning to work with other healthcare personnel, simulating a real-world situation. This year’s simulation involved athletic training students assisting an athlete hurt on the field, including assessing the situation, stabilizing the athlete and transporting him to the emergency room. Nursing students take over in recording the information known about the patient, begin an assessment and treatments. The simulation ends with a debriefing exercise with professors and students going over what went well and what could have been better.
