Disaster Drill Prepares Nursing Students for Emergency Situations
Outside the double doors that lead into the gym stands a mob of people with traces of dried-up fake blood over their faces, necks and legs. “Are you conscious?” said Dewayne Trice with blood dripping out of his ears and mouth. “Yeah, I think so,” said Rebecca Caballero, her left leg, forehead and cheek covered in blood. Trice and Caballero are both junior nursing students and volunteers at the disaster drill put on by the School of Nursing at the University of Texas at Austin to give health profession students basic training in disaster response.
