Northwestern Nursing students bring Pediatric Assessment Day to Washington Elementary School

Pediatric Assessment Day

Pediatric Assessment Day 2014

Northwestern Oklahoma State University junior nursing students conducted Pediatric Assessment Day 2014 in Jennifer Tyree’s kindergarten class at Washington Elementary School, Tuesday, Jan. 21.               

Members of the kindergarten class were weighed, measured, had their hearts listened to, participated in other “ice breaker” activities and received goodie bags.

“Pediatric Assessment day is a great way for our nursing students to learn how to communicate with children,” Jennifer Mahieu, instructor of nursing, said. “It helps us see the average growth of a child at this age.”
