Nursing Techniques: Blood Pressure and Pulse Checks

May 4, 2017

BP check

First year students in Nursing Techniques 1301 took over the NDC library hallway today to offer blood pressure and pulse checks for students, faculty, and staff. Split into two sections, one group in the morning and one in the afternoon, the students provided these important health checks, under the supervision of RNs.

The exercise gave students an opportunity to practice their skills in more of a real world situation, rather than the skills lab. In addition to practicing the technical skills, students were also able to communicate and interact with a diverse community.
