Manufacturing Helping Nursing Services
Nursing services would like to give a HUGE shout out to Mr. Urabe and his manufacturing students for creating and donating 150 face shields to our two clinical sites and Dinuba Health Care, a long-term care facility in Tulare county. All these facilities have positive COVID-19 patients and were in DESPERATE need of protective gear. A huge THANK YOU to Mr. Urabe and his amazing students who designed the face shields at home and MR. Urabe brought their designs to life in his classroom. Also, our very own Mrs. Ramirez made face masks and donated to our clinical sites. Here at Duncan we have amazing staff and students who are helping our community.
Nursing Services during COVID-19 Distance Learning
Our nursing students have been engaged with distance learning since Wednesday March 18, 2020. They have taken 8 C.N.A practice exams, recorded over 10 skills videos, taken multiple skills quizzes, and attended two zoom meetings as of Friday April 3, 2020. Students will have a week off for Spring Break. We have a 95% participation in all google classroom, YouTube skills videos, flipgrid, and zoom activities from our students. The resilience and creativity of our students to complete the assignments and activities proves our students will make excellent health care professionals. Change is inevitable. Nursing is a fast-paced world, with constant transformation with its ever-evolving technology, that steers healthcare through a constant state of regenerating policies to ensure that we are providing quality care to our patients. Our Stallions have embraced the revolving door of change in their new distance learning. We are proud of them. We thank our student’s families for being supportive and willing to stay the course on our students’ goal. Many families are assisting with playing as patients in skills videos. We are in this together mentality. Our nursing services students have completed all minimum required 60 theory hours, and with the addition of Saturday clinicals prior to March 13, 2020, have completed all 100 clinical hours. Our work is nowhere near complete as now we focus on preparing our students for the state exam, with the goal of having every student who qualifies to take and pass the exam.
