BROWNIES-Learning about nursing

They loved using the stethoscope. They got to hear each other's heart, lungs and belly sounds.

My friend Ashley came to Lily's Brownie meeting yesterday to help them earn their nursing try-it. The girls were very interested in all she taught them. A good thing, because Ashley had a statistic that in the year 2020, around when they will be graduating college, there will be 800,000 nursing jobs open. Wow!
