It is known that the best way to learn is by doing. This is how the Moraine Park nursing program teaches their nursing students every day in the simulation center located on the West Bend campus.
Moraine Park hosted 8th grade students district-wide on Thursday, January 12, to interact with local businesses and programs at our College.
Surgical Technology Instructor, Chad Bratz, opened the Surgical Technology classroom and transformed it into a surgical suite.
You might be surprised to hear this, but did you realize that there are not very many men in the healthcare field? In fact, less than 25% of all Nurses, Radiologic Technologist, Medical Lab Technicians and Medical Office Specialists are male. At Moraine Park, our goal is to even out the numbers.
On Friday, December 16th, the Nursing Program faculty and staff celebrated the end of the semester with a festive ugly sweater contest, lunch, and Secret Santa exchange on the Fond du Lac campus – and we wishing everyone a happy festive holiday season!
An important part of becoming a nurse is learning how a nurse cares for individual patients. Nursing students will also need to learn how to care for their communities they live and work in.
Third semester nursing students get that opportunity during their Mental Health and Community Concepts course. One of the assignments the nursing students complete is titled “Advocating for Your Community.” The students choose a community topic in their city or county and then develop a plan to help the community they choose.
The West Bend Student Nurses Association (SNA) group collected over $350 worth of toys/cash donations to help make Christmas a little brighter for area kids that belong to the Boys and Girls Club.
The group was involved in a competition with other clubs to donate the largest amount of toys.
