On April 18th students in the High Skills Specialist Major Program went to Niagara College (Welland Campus) to learn about the Nursing and Fitness Promotion Programs. Students had hands on opportunities with cardiovascular testing labs and nursing practices in their realistic hospital ward. The $60,000 mannequins can be programmed to react like people demonstrating several conditions and symptoms. Their pupils can dilate, heartrate and breathing can be heard through stethoscopes etc. Next year we want to explore the Paramedic and Police Foundations Programs. The anatomy that is taught in Grade 12 Kinesiology at Stamford is very helpful in preparation for such College and University Programs.
