Hudson, Wis., students explore healthcare careers
from Hudson Star Observer
Camryn Letcher placed the stethoscope on the rubbery surface and listened. "I heard a heartbeat," the Hudson (Wis.) High School freshman said. "It was really weird because it felt like it was alive, like I was listening to a real person." The patient simulators at Chippewa Valley Technical College in River Falls, Wis., bring to life realistic vital signs and symptoms. For Letcher, the experience was closer than she had ever been to real patient care in a clinical setting. "I’m thinking of being a pediatric nurse," she said.
