New Pediatric Simulator

Last year, Bama Blitz raised funds for the Capstone College of Nursing to buy a Juno simulator. This year, we hope to get Juno a new little brother! Our 2019 Bama Blitz goal is to raise $6,500 for a Nursing Kid Simulator. Realistically representing a six-year old child, Nursing Kid is designed for skill and scenario-based training of the care and management of a variety of pediatric patients. This child is ideal for clinical training of common and uncommon in-hospital pediatric patients including wound assessment and care, first aid, and child abuse training.

 

A large proportion of each nursing cohort is interested in pursuing pediatric care after graduation. Being able to provide ample training opportunities for those who want to go into pediatric care is vital because many pediatric units limit what nursing students can do during clinical rotations. Nursing Kid will allow UA nursing students to hone their skills before joining the workforce.

 

“Pediatrics is a very specialized field,” said Jessica Johnson, clinical instructor at the Capstone College of Nursing. “While a lot of the skills translate from adults to children, the way they are implemented is very different. I feel that Nursing Kid is going to allow our students to experience that and prepare them for what they will see in the future.”
