Nursing Students Help with Simulation Study

Nursing Students Help with Simulation Study

Starting this fall nursing students at the College of Southern Nevada will be part of a national study on simulated patients.

The study will use 154 full-time nursing students to see if more work with simulated patients can give students better training than real patients. The simulated patients are not the old-fashioned mannequins people might envision. The new simulated patients are highly sophisticated computerized mannequins that can replicate any patient condition.

Using a simulator means mistakes do not turn into tragedies and educators can make the mannequins go through scenarios that students are unlikely to see at a local hospital making them more prepared for unique situations.

The CSN nurses are part of a study going on at top nursing schools around the country.

 “CSN’s selection to take part in this project speaks to the national reputation of quality our nursing program has established,” said CSN President Dr. Michael D. Richards.

Getting a Jump on the New Cell Phone Law

Getting a Jump on the New Cell Phone Law

Henderson Police today announced they will get a head start on the new state law governing cell phone use while driving.

Department officers will no longer use handheld cell phones and text while driving on duty except in emergencies.

Although a new law banning the use of handheld cell phones provides an exemption for police officers on duty to use handheld cell phones, Chief Jutta Chambers said she wants Henderson to lead by example.

The new department policy mirrors the state law banning the use of handheld devices. Chief Chambers signed the new policy which goes into effect today, two months before the new state law. The new law banning the use of handheld cell phones or other handheld devices to talk, type or read will start on Oct. 1 with police officers issuing warnings. Starting Jan. 1, officers will start issuing tickets.

Registration for City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department fall classes, events and programs opens at 5 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 15. People may register online, by mail, using a City of Henderson self-serve kiosk located at City Hall, Black Mountain Recreation Center, and Henderson Multigenerational Center, or in person at any recreation center. Early registration is recommended as many classes fill up quickly.

“Previously we had different registration dates depending on the method of enrollment,” said Kim Becker, Communications & Marketing supervisor, City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department. “While more than 95 percent of our patrons register online, there are some who don’t have a credit or debit card or don’t have online access so they must register by mail or in person. Having a single start date for all registration methods now ensures everyone has an equal opportunity to sign up for the programs they want.”
