Alaska Native students get hands-on medical experience at University of Alaska Anchorage's nursing camp

from Alaska Public Media

Nurse Charlie Tyrrell is walking students through a wound care demonstration. 17-year-old Mariah Perez and her class partner Rayanne Alick are changing out a bandage on a simulated mannequin. This one has an abdominal injury. After filling the wound with black foam, they have to apply an adhesive to hold everything down. In addition to wound care, the group of about 10 students learned how to measure blood pressure, analyzed breathing patterns and now have their own stethoscopes. It’s part of a three-day nursing camp hosted by University of Alaska Anchorage’s Recruitment and Retention of Alaska Natives into Nursing program. more
