CTEC Field Trip to Duke By Jessica Williams, The Times-News 5/23/19 Reprinted with permission.
Alamance-Burlington Careerand Technical Education facilitated a field trip for 30 ninth- and 10th-grade boys to tour the Duke University School of Nursing on April 17. Students learned about education requirements, salary ranges and the various specialty areas of nursing, and were able to hear from a panel of current nursing students, a nurse practitioner and a nurse anesthetist. After, students were able to view demonstrations and engage in hands-on activities including: bandaging wounds, checking blood pressure, listening to the heart and lungs, intubating fake patients and using the vein finder. The tour ended with a pizza lunch.
