Yesterday, I was at a remote broadcast in Wilton at Beal University. They were giving tours of their new state-of-the-art simulation and nursing labs and I was absolutely blown away.

This particular campus has so much to offer. If I wasn't in radio, I would most definitely move over to nursing. This program is specifically for helping you become a Registered Nurse.

The faculty and staff were incredible, friendly, and very knowledgeable. I was able to take a tour of the building and saw something I didn't expect.

As I was walking down the hall with Joe, the programs director, I noticed a woman laying on her back in a room, pregnant, about to give birth. So, I screamed a little because it freaked me out and he laughed.

What I was looking at was their simulation manikin, which is extremely realistic and life-like.

I was told by Joe that these manikins are so helpful to the students. This pregnant manikin is able to hemorrhage, and make noises like she's reacting, so in turn, the nursing students can react the way it would be in a real life scenario.

This is light years ahead of the way nursing students used to learn. I believe it will help with their clinicals and tests they have to perform.

Other than my new manikin friends, I was also proud to meet Steve Villett, Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Colleen Koob, Academic Dean, Joe Maoral Programs Director, and Jeff Burbine the VP of Enrollment.

This nursing program can be competed in only 18 months and their are still open spots to enroll! You can learn more here!

How much fun would that be to pretend you are shipwrecked with your lover and have a romantic weekend role-playing like two castaways? I'm down with that. Well, you can do that right here in Maine!
