This group of scholars learned how to become a nurse during a workshop on the East Liverpool Campus.


For any Rising Scholar from Columbiana County thinking about a future in nursing, a recent workshop on the East Liverpool Campus may have helped with the planning process.

Listening for a heartbeat.
Faculty and students from the associate degree in nursing (ADN) program at East Liverpool welcomed a group of scholars for a day of demonstrations and hands-on activities in the nursing labs.

Scholars interacted with a variety of “patients” (mannequins) using stethoscopes to detect heartbeats and pulses; IV needles; and other medical devices.

“The scholars worked alongside nursing faculty and students who demonstrated how they train on state-of-the-art mannequins, including ‘Annie,’” explained Dr. Jessica Paull, Rising Scholars program coordinator. “Annie has a heartbeat, pulse and can be programmed to ‘crash,’ so students had to find the source of her medical issues for her vitals to return to normal.”

Throughout the day, scholars learned about various career paths in nursing and the educational process to become nurses.

The participating scholars included Kaitlyn Boston, Chariti Boyd, Jazzmen Echols, Haylee Kellogg and Kiah Sloan from Southern Local; Ryan Ehler and Giovanna Pucci from Wellsville; Kayleigh Ansell, Miles Reynolds and Melody Wright from East Liverpool; Lillian Starcher from Salem; Teagan Arter and Taylor Chapman from Leetonia; and Kaitlyn Black and Selena Zuti from Crestview.

The mentors included Blaine McCardy and Loki Kalima.
