An East Texas professor says the future of nursing is happening here and now in Tyler.
High-tech mannequins at TJC are giving nurses and nursing students hands-on experience in labor and delivery scenarios.
For the past year, nursing students at TJC have used simulation labs, with mannequins like “expecting mother Noelle” to prepare them for the real thing.
“It is different being able to talk to them and speak with them. They give us answers, give us problems stuff like that. It is very helpful; it’s the closest thing that comes to a real life person,” said student Justin Vance.
