Mariners Hospital hosts A Day In The Life Of A Nurse™ for high school students

October 23, 2019

Tavernier, FL – October 23, 2019 – Paul Hann, R.N., Jaimie Eaves, R.N., and Beth Dunlap, R.N., from Mariners Hospital, spent the day with 15 students from Coral Shores High School. During an event called A Day in the Life of a Nurse™, the students toured several departments in the hospital including the Hyperbaric Chamber.

Scott Fowler, manager of the Hyperbaric Chamber, explained to the students that the chamber can treat up to 13 approved conditions, including wound healing, treatment of infections and carbon monoxide poisoning.

“I learned so much about the services offered at this facility. There are far more than I expected,” said Alexander Stenberg, a junior at the school.

“The best part about this day is that I am able to introduce all the different aspects of nursing and healthcare to the students,” said Paul Hann, R.N., Operating Room nurse at the hospital.

“Most of my family is in healthcare, so I have had a lot of inspiration for what I wanted to do in my career. However, I never thought I would be interested in trauma; I was really interested in what the flight nurse does,” added Deanna Messa-Green, a senior at the school.

Baptist Health South Florida has taken part in A Day in the Life of a Nurse™ for several years.
