Nursing and EMS cross-disciplinary learning simulation

LLCC nursing and EMS students conducted a cross-discipline, mass disaster, triage simulation last Saturday in the Workforce Careers Center. Paramedic students were paired with nursing students as they worked to efficiently triage, treat and transport the victims. The collaborative exercise was covered by WICS/FOX Illinois and the State Journal-Register. Dr. Pamela Bradley, professor of nursing, and Nick Ferreira, EMS and medical coding program coordinator, provided interviews.
