Over 200 students participated
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – More than 200 Southeast Community College health science students participated in a mock hospital day on Friday.
The event took place at SCC’s state-of-the-art facilities, which opened in October 2020.
Students from all of the college’s health programs attended the simulations, as well as students from Union College, also located in Lincoln.
The students conducted a series of mock emergencies and also received training on communication, racism in medicine and other topics.
Brittney Rinn, a second-year medical laboratory student at CSC, shared how the day was an educational benefit for students in the program.
“Today’s simulation lab was a really great experience,” she said. “It was very chaotic, and that’s normal in hospitals or even clinics. And so it was a good experience, I think, for all the departments to be able to see what other departments are doing, what their roles are, what their knowledge levels are, what their education levels are, and how we have to rely on everyone and it’s not one department more important than the other.
SCC hopes to continue hosting mock hospital days, helping students gain experience.
