CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A group of students at Del Mar College received a hands-on lesson Tuesday morning putting their quick thinking to the test with trauma patients.

Nursing students were placed in a scenario where trauma patients were rolled in on gurnies requiring critical care. The exercise aimed to teach students how to handle emergency situations, work as a group and prioritize patients.

The Del Mar College nursing program was recently ranked among the Top 20 accredited programs in Texas. Many graduates continue on to become respected nurses in our own community.
