Equipment Support for Learning and Simulation Center
|With the increase in nursing enrollment and high usage of equipment in the DU Learning and Simulation Center, Rosanna Henry, MSN, RN, Director of Learning and Simulation Center, requested Alumni support to replace certain equipment. Technologies and methodologies are changing rapidly in nursing, and the need for meaningful learning and providing safe patient care relies on using simulation as an important teaching strategy.
On December 3, 2019, the DU SON Alumni Association Board approved the donation of $225 for the CareTemp Touch Free Thermometer for the DU Learning and Simulation Center. This thermometer is an important clinical screening tool to quickly assess if a patient has an elevated temperature or not.
The thermometer has been a great addition to the teaching and learning process. Student Edward Strah uses the thermometer to take the temperature of his peer, Caden Bizer.
In case you have not been to the Learning and Simulation Center, here is a virtual tour.
Port Charlotte Reunion

Here's to many more years of happy get-togethers!
