Hands-On Learning at NDA

Students in Mrs. Ziegler’s Anatomy and Physiology class had the opportunity for some incredible hands-on learning this school year! In an effort to share career pathways with her students, Mrs. Ziegler invites various speakers to her class. Recently, Jeff Arlinghaus, a nurse-anesthetist with St.Elizabeth Healthcare and the Northern Kentucky University’s Anesthetist Program, came to NDA and taught the students how to administer spinals, epidurals and intubation of the trachea.

NDA alumna Jill Weidner ’05, a second year Nurse Anesthesia Resident, came to help Mr. Arlinghaus with the spinal and epidural anesthesia simulation at NDA. Jill was one of sixteen students picked for the program out of about 60 applicants.
