Future Nurse?

Last week the surgery dept. did a neat thing for Peri-Operative Nurses Week. We invited a first grade class to come to a "Bear Hospital". They got to bring their "sick or injured" bears, dolls, or other stuffed toys to the hospital and go back into the OR while we worked on them. We put the "patients" to sleep and then casted, sewed and patched them up. The staff got to bring up our own kids and grandkids beforehand to go through. Hollace took her American Girl doll, Angelina, who had a "broken arm". They all had lots of fun-and who knows maybe one or two of them will grow up to be nurses. Maybe even Hollace, even if right now she says when she grows up she is going to work at Sonic and Mega Movies.....

Who wouldn't want to work at Sonic and Mega Movies??? I bet you get free cokes and movie rentals!

That is such a fun idea! The photos are so cute, I just wish they'd open bigger!

What a neat idea!! I bet that was a lot of fun! Love the picture of Hollace holding her baby's hand :) Pretty precious.

I love that idea! Probably won't work in my profession. I'm sure tax accounting isn't very exciting to a 1st grader.
