SIM-NE comes to Mary Lanning Healthcare

Additional EMT training rolled into Mary Lanning Healthcare, as Simulation in Motion-Nebraska made its way to Hastings to teach emergency professionals different ways to handle a situation. The SIM-NE trucks have the ability to simulate multiple scenarios and they reach more than 90% of the state. They also average two classes a week, and health officials say spreading this knowledge helps everyone.
