Latest Alumni Updates
We gather around a man on a gurney, dressed in yellow isolation gowns and N95 masks, listening to the story the ambulance crew tells us about John, 76-year-old male, transported from Garden Villa. He tested COVID positive three days ago, staff called 911 because his oxygen saturations were low. History of a stroke, documentation of a do not resuscitate order, comfort measures. Pretty much comatose. Medics and I slide him from their gurney to our stretcher, connect him to oxygen, blood pressure cuff, cardiac monitoring.
Hi Hilary, I just wanted to tell you that I got into nursing school! I just found out that I've been accepted to the accelerated bachelors of nursing program at Idaho State University! It begins summer semester and is a one year program so by next summer I will have my bachelors in nursing! :) Hope all is well with you, and I just wanted to thank you for all the help, encouragement, and advice you've given me the past four years, it has really meant a lot to me.
