Fake Patients, Real Stress

November 19, 2019

You can’t become a nurse before you practice on patients, but you can’t practice on patients before you’re a nurse… right? Northeastern’s Bouvé College of Health Sciences has a solution: robots. And these ones can bleed.

In this episode, we talk to Jamie Musler (director of interprofessional medical simulation and the Arnold S. Goldstein Simulation Labs) and nursing students Nathalie Garcia and Julia Thompson.

Litmus is produced and reported by News@Northeastern reporters Emily Arntsen and Aria Bracci. This episode was written and hosted by Emily Arntsen with mixing by Emily Arntsen, Aria Bracci, and Anthony Pulido. Edited by David Filipov.
