Larson will discuss and demonstrate some of the things nurses do with and/or for patients who are in a hospital. The training session will take place from 4-5:30 p.m. Monday, March 22, in the Nursing Building. For details, contact Elaine Wendt, associate dean of the School of Nursing, at (715) 836-5287.
