Briefs for June 3

Summer class offers hospital O.R. training

Colorado Northwestern Community College is offering an intensive perioperative nursing class starting June 10. The intensive 90-hour class is a joint effort with The Memorial Hospital. The class is open to registered nurses or those who are set to earn their registered nursing licenses. It is limited to seven students, but there are two slots open. The first time opportunity for students to get training in operating rooms will be taught by former Craig resident and Moffat County High School graduate, Julie Mower. Mower is on the faculty at Metropolitan State College of Denver.

Marilyn Bouldin, head of the Craig CNCC nursing program, said the opportunity might not arise again locally. Bouldin said specialized training for nurses in operation rooms is a good skill to learn, as there are operating room nurse shortages across the country.

"It's a wonderful opportunity that we won't do for another year, if at all," Bouldin said.

For more information, and to register for the class call Bouldin at 824-1119.
