Careers in Nursing 4-11-15

On Saturday, April 11, 2015, ACES students learned about what nurses do, the types of nurses, where nurses work, how to become a nurse, and what to do now to prepare for a career in nursing.  Our guest speaker was Laura McElroy, Registered Nurse and Cardiovascular Nurse Manager at Poplar Bluff Regional Medical Center.  Laura spoke about how she became a nurse and what her job entails on a daily basis.  Students then participated in several hands-on activities which included how to start an IV, how to draw blood, and how to give injections.
