TNCC nursing students practice high-risk childbirth scenarios with SimMom
When her care team pronounced "Kelly Brady" out of danger from a preeclamptic episode at 1:40 p.m. on Monday, a crowd of bystanders cheered. The crowd, gathered in the nursing simulation lab at the Williamsburg campus of Thomas Nelson Community College was there to celebrate the gift of the $50,000 high-fidelity mannequin from Sentara Healthcare to the college's nursing program.
