State-of-the-art dummies help UIC nursing students practice real world scenarios.

Editor and co-host Bea Bonner sat down with Dr. Sara McPherson to explore how the UIC nursing program came to Springfield. UIC and UIS have partnered to allow a greater range of students to engage with healthcare professionals and learn the ropes of what comes with taking care of others. From state-of-the-art training dummies to a realistic learning space, the UIC nursing program has what it needs to help its students decide on a career path in nursing.
