Introducing Kids to Nursing

  1. My son's 2nd grade teacher asked me to give a class presentation about what nurses do on a daily basis and explain how important nurses are in our community.

    I have a total of 20 minutes so I thought I would pass around a stethoscope, blood pressure cuff, tube feeding bags, etc.. But my question is how can I make it fun, interactive and what type of small gift can I give them to take home. I thought about hand sanitizer but another parent beat me to it.

    Does anyone have any great ideas how to pull this together. I want my son's classmates to think I'm a cool mom!!
