Osborn students take pulse of GCU nursing program

June 01, 2016 / by / 0 Comment

It’s not every day that eighth- and ninth- graders can take vital signs of a “patient” in a simulation lab, but that’s what students attending Osborn Middle School’s career camp got to do Tuesday at GCU’s College of Nursing and Health Care Professions. The teens got a hands-on lesson in what it’s like to be a nurse as they evaluated both “Sim Man” and his younger, female counterpart. The lesson many took away was that not only is health care a great career, but that GCU’s high-tech, cutting edge program is highly appealing.

By Jeannette Cruz GCU News Bureau Most of us have seen how technology has altered the humble chalkboard that our teachers once used. From white boards to smart boards to online lesson plans and digital textbooks, embracing technology has become a journey for 21st-century educators and a major part of students’ lives. At the Google EdTech Summit held Monday at Grand Canyon University, more than 400 education teachers, specialists and students from across the state focused on one major point: how to engage students through technology integration. GCU President Brian Mueller opened the conference, which GCU co-presented with the Arizona K12 Center, followed by a keynote address from Jim Sill, a Google education teacher who, after a decade in the video and television industry, set out on a career in education.
