State-of-the-art simulation allows students to perform c-section

Posted: Updated:
UNIVERSITY CENTER, MI (WNEM) -

From the epidural to the delivery, students learn it all through a state of the art simulation program.

“Especially to do it, not in real life, in a controlled setting, is a great opportunity,” said Abby Morse, Delta College student.

Morse and other students at Delta College got to perform a scheduled, uncomplicated caesarian-section delivery.

“We will be performing a surgery and nursing student will care for the mother, prior to the surgery,” said simulation instructor, Lori Kloc. “The surgical tech will perform the surgery or assist with the surgery, nursing students will care for the baby and then go back and care for the mother.”

Students come together at the operating table both from nursing and surgical tech to gain skills that they can use in their future jobs.

“Be able to learn what everybody does before you actually get into a real life situation, learn their roles versus ours,” said Megan Kehn, student.

The innovative program has even caught the eye of high school students like Alyssa Crampson looking for future careers.

“I think it's really cool because it gets to show you everything that they do,” Crampson said.

In the end, the students were able to deliver a healthy 7-pound, 12-ounce baby boy named Matthew. He even cries and has a heartbeat.

The students at Delta College said that this is an important step towards graduation. 

“Being able to interact with students and staff and feeling more confident in my role as a future nurse,” Morse said.
