Nursing Program students at Columbia Gorge Community College led tours around campus facilities for community members and student alumni during the 10th anniversary celebration of the program. Tour participants saw the CGCC Rural Clinical Simulation Center, which is designed to mimic clinical settings to provide the nursing students at CGCC the opportunity to practice nursing clinical judgment at the patient’s bedside and to enhance their skills. The students are given clinically focused case scenarios in which they must act as the nurse and demonstrate safe, research-based nursing care as the “patient’s” conditions change. Nursing faculty facilitate the students’ learning experience in the simulation lab. The event also included comments from the college president, Dr. Frank Toda, and from CEO Ed Freysinger of Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital, who shared information about the partnership between the college and the hospital. This week is also Nurses Week in the United States.
