Nursing student’s quick action saves fellow nurse having stroke

“All I learned in nursing school came to me in that moment,” said the Jasper, Georgia, native. “It seemed like it happened so fast. People think they will go completely blank. Everything came back to me and I thought this was what I needed to do.” http://jagwire.augusta.edu/archives/64894

Still shocked by what she was witnessing, Buras thought quickly. Should she scream for help? She didn’t want to wake the children nearby. Should she go next door asking for help, even though that would mean leaving Echevarria alone momentarily?

Lead can show up where we least expect it, including in children's toys. Dean Lucy Marion spoke with Channel 12 about the impacts of lead poisoning in children.

Parents will go any length and stand any line to see the look joy on our children's faces Christmas morning. The last thing on our mind is if the toys we just got them could make them sick.

It’s What We Do: One CNL student’s journey to follow in her family’s footsteps

“We have faculty that always remind us to treat the patient and not the illness,” she said. “Your patient is not their illness; they just have that illness for a time. Patients have physical and mental needs and being able to recognize them for the people they are is an important aspect of nursing.”-- Amma Sarfo, graduating CNL student

http://jagwire.augusta.edu/archives/59489

Soon, Amma Sarfo will begin a journey that most everyone in her family has already undertaken. Her mother. Her father. Her brother and older sisters before her.
