Trauma drama

Blood flowed freely at the field house on Tuesday as nursing students worked to treat injuries in the midst of chaos.

The “victims” were volunteers participating in the nursing emergency drill, gathered by the healthcare staff, which was staged from 5 to 9 p.m.

Its purpose was to train student nurses how to respond in a disaster situation.

Nursing students were expected to complete online modules regarding disaster situations prior to attending the drill.

“The healthcare professionals on campus got volunteers to act as victims and they modeled a disaster situation,” senior nursing major Elizabeth Pavlovsky said.
