The University of Rochester’s Pre-College Programs: Nursing – Is It In Your Future?

The future of Nursing is it in your
future basically of course geared towards students who might be
interested in the field of Nursing or some other field in healthcare and we
really describe what Nursing does and what their responsibilities and roles
are in patient care, we learn about the nursing process which includes
assessment diagnosis planning and intervention and we use that model to go
over certain aspects of nursing care so not only does it expose you to what
exactly your first couple years of nursing experience to be but how you can
specialize and really take the nursing profession all the way to the doctorate
level. I think the most exciting part of the course is the hands-on simulation
getting to work with mannequins that can simulate problems in patients healthcare
concerns that can come up while you’re working with a patient gives the
students the experience of actually being a nurse and what your
responsibilities are it allows them to act and partake and then we can debrief
and talk about that situation I really like them to take away a knowledge of
what Nursing really is I think in the community and you know in the United
States we often think of Nursing is just a caring profession and we are
definitely a very caring profession but there’s a lot more that goes into it
there’s scientific evidence knowledgebase that people need to know
and it just presents itself as nursing as a holistic model versus just
task-based and I think that’s one thing I see in my
students is they really see the difference between maybe a medical
focused as a physician or a physician’s assistant and working as a nurse or
nurse practitioner what the differences and philosophies are.
