Special thanks to Michelle Thorpe who recently took time out of her busy schedule to speak with our prekindergarten classes about her career as a surgical nurse at Countryside Mease Hospital. The students had an amazing time learning about their bones and organs. Additionally, Mrs. Thorpe demonstrated what steps occur during some surgical procedures such as a hip replacement. Our young scholars also experienced handling a syringe, putting on a hairnet, mask and gloves just like a real nurse. Everyone had a wonderful time while experiencing hands on learning.
