Adelphi University will be hosting high school students who are interested in taking nursing classes using the latest technology in their new Nursing Simulation Labs as part of a two-week Pre-College Summer Program in Introduction to Nursing. The program is open to students from all 50 states who are entering their freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior years.
Starting on Monday, July 10, students will begin the program with a Health Assessment Lab that covers every system in the body, then allows them to take part in an assessment lab where they can practice taking vital signs and blood pressure on each other and on the mannequins in Adelphi’s new state-of-the-art simulation lab.
The program is intended to give high school students the opportunity to live on Adelphi’s Garden City campus and explore the nursing profession by interacting with faculty, touring the university’s clinical education and simulation labs, and interacting hands-on with mannequins in the skills labs to learn basic care and health assessment. Classes offered during the two-week period will include Health Assessment Fundamentals in nursing, pharmacology, medical surgical nursing/older adult, nutrition, and an American Heart Association CPR certificate course.
