Widener nursing students test skills in disaster drill
from Delco Times
An explosion, then smoke, screams and sirens. This was the scene at Widener University Schwartz Athletic Center recently as a simulated, yet intense, emergency disaster drill was held for 140 senior nursing students to test their classroom learning and skill sets. The School of Nursing collaborated with local and state emergency response agencies and medical centers across eight states and three counties, including the Pennsylvania Department of Health Bureau of Public Health Preparedness, the Southeastern Pennsylvania Surge Medical Assistance Response Team, Crozer-Chester Medical Center, the Chester Police Department and the Chester Fire Department.
