Bethesda Foundation tour of nursing“Alfred State appreciates the Bethesda Foundation and its ongoing scholarship support to nursing students in these three counties,” said Dr. Lisa Harmon, chair of the Nursing department.

Nine members of the Bethesda Foundation visited Alfred State Thursday to get a first-hand look at one of the Nursing department’s high-fidelity simulation labs in the Physical and Health Sciences building.

The group watched as senior nursing students Chelsea Goodwill, of Falconer, N.Y., and Jessica Matava, of Ontario, N.Y., administered care to a SimMan 3G ® manikin, which simulates an actual hospital patient.

Phil Loree, president of the Bethesda Foundation, said of the simulation, “I think it’s great. The ability to use a manikin like that is fantastic.”
