Attendees learn alongside clinical nurses and nurse educators as they engaged in a variety of hands-on skills labs and activities, including CPR and Stop the Bleed training; donning and doffing PPE, mobility devices and lifts; removing sutures and staples; checking vital signs, medication, administration, and more. Nursing students are often asked to volunteer to help with different activities. Attendees also gain valuable insight into nursing school and what it takes to become a registered nurse.
