Twenty-two juniors and seniors from the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) programs at Isle of Wight and Southampton County public schools visited Paul D. Camp Community College Department of Nursing and Allied Health recently for an interactive workshop series called “That Medical Thing.”
The students from the high schools were able to work with PDCCC students from the registered nursing, licensed practical nursing and emergency medical services programs.
“They learned about first aid, airway management and hemorrhage control,” said Dean of Nursing and Allied Health Dr. Debbie Hartman.
“They also had the opportunity to experience simulation with an OB patient in active labor and complete an assessment on a patient with airway concerns while they were in the lab.”

Matyson Crutchley is tasked with explaining how an incentive spirometer is used.
