Marina Del Rey Hospital hosts foreign nursing students
For the fourth consecutive year, Marina Del Rey Hospital has hosted Japanese nursing students from Harada Gakuen Kagoshima Medical Technology College in Kagoshima, Japan.
The 22 students visited Marina del Rey Feb. 1 and received training on advanced cardiac life support, how to safely administer intravenous therapy and intubate a patient. They also shadowed nurses in the emergency room and intensive care unit, as well as observed spine and robotic surgery cases.
“We are extremely proud and honored to have once again hosted these amazing nursing students,” said Fred Hunter, president and CEO of Marina Del Rey Hospital. “As a nurse, it is exciting for me to see the next generation of nurses who will one day touch the lives of countless patients and inspire others to pursue a career in medicine.”
Emergency room physician Dr. Kent Shoji and nurses Jason Driver, Michiko Matsue and Trina Ingalls worked with the visiting nursing students.
