The College of Nursing welcomed its May 3rd HE2ARTS Program visitors.  High school students as well as over 30 middle school students arrived from New York to come to the College of Nursing to hear about what we do in nursing that connects with engineering and technology.

Members of Chi Eta Phi Sorority Inc. (Theta Delta Beta chapter) participated as a service project. They demonstrated the technology of the smart medication dispensing systems in the Driscoll Hall simulation labs and discussed the importance of knowing the R’s of medication administration. The nursing students also taught the visitors how to use a stethoscope and listen to the heart and breath sounds of well and ill infants using computerized human patient simulators.
