Practical Nursing Program News
11/11/2014

Auburn Practical Nursing Program students recently participated in a joint webinar put on by the American Nurses Association, the Center for Disease Control, and the Department of Health and Human Services regarding Ebola precautions.  This unique learning opportunity allowed the students to understand how evolving health policy is formed and the challenges that can be faced.  The learning experience was capped off with practice of donning and doffing personal protective equipment.  Although the chances are slim that any one nurse will come into contact with an Ebola client, Auburn Practical Nursing Program students are prepared!

Nursing students at Auburn's Practical Nursing Program are using a state of the art medical simulation system. Auburn Career Center is one of a select group of career and technical schools to purchase and offer the use of advanced simulation technology. Research shows medical simulation enhances critical thinking skills and ultimately increases quality care and patient safety by exposing students to low-volume events without endangering actual patients.

"The Demo-Dose Medication Dispensing System provides our students the opportunity to experience firsthand what real patient care is like," said Nursing Program Administrator, Sandy Ranck. Nursing students learn how to dispense practice medications in a secure environment, learn the different types of medications and their uses, learn how to accurately prepare and dispense the medications, and understand the inventory tracking of medications. All nursing students must successfully pass the medication administration testing to meet graduation requirements.

"Auburn's Practical Nursing Program provides one-on-one instructor based education on one of the most advanced medication dispensing systems currently available," said Ranck. Working one-on-one with their classroom instructor, the nursing students are given a scenario or simulated patient to apply the skills they have learned. During the simulated session, the student will receive the patient medications, identify when medications should be administered, learn to retrieve the appropriate medications, and finally administer the medications to a practice classroom mannequin.

The end result... Auburn's Practical Nursing students are receiving a high-quality education which will ultimately prepare them for their future in the field of nursing.


A NEW START ON LIFE

A New Start on Life

In the fall of 2011, Mary Kolin was looking for a way to make significant changes in her life.  Due to family health issues and the need to care for her children, Mary had to temporarily postpone her long-time goal of obtaining her college degree in nursing.  Not wanting to give up that dream totally, Mary contacted the Auburn Practical Nursing Program to see if she would be able to start the program in January 2012.  “I wanted to find a school that would give me a solid foundation for my nursing skills.  I also wanted to find a school where I could ‘get in and get out’ so I could start earning a better wage than I had.”

Mary recently attained her goal.  After passing her NCLEX-PN exam following graduation, Mary was hired by a facility within a week.  “I credit my success not only to my hard work, but also to the caring attitude of my instructors.  I feel that everyone associated with the program wants each and every student to succeed.” 

Mary feels so strongly about her experience at the Auburn Practical Nursing Program that she recently visited one of the current classes to share her experience and offer words of encouragement.  “I feel that it is important to “pay it forward” since that was the experience I had.”  Mary’s future plans not only include becoming familiar with her new job, but continuing her education from a Licensed Practical Nurse to a Registered Nurse.  Good luck, Mary!
