The School of Nursing is seeking pregnant women who are willing to help its DNP students as volunteers. They are are in their second clinical year and currently taking a Gender Health course, and their professors would like to prepare the students prior to going to their clinical sites.
Faculty would like to demonstrate how to measure the abdomen, check for fetal heart tones, and allow students to do the same as well as interview volunteer patients and provide appropriate education per trimester. You are the patient but you are free to be yourself, give as much as you want of your own history or someone else (your chance to act!). There are six students in this class and the students will work in groups of two so you will have only one group of students working with you at a time. There are other women volunteering so you will not be alone in the simulation classroom. You may bring a support person with you, either partner or friend.
The study will take place on Saturday, January 26, 4:15-5:15 p.m. in the School of Nursing simulation lab. Volunteers will not need to stay for the full amount of time.
The School of Nursing will compensate volunteers $50 for their assistance with this class. You will need to complete a W-2 ore W-9 form, invoice, and informed consent which will be provided for you. Please contact Amber Vermeesch, nursing, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
