Cancer Patient Honors Her Doctor and Nurses for "Gift of Hope"

Ron and Sandy Schutz with Ann Puglisi, RN

Medical Staff Training Benefits from Gala Support

Chris and Autumn, NorthShore Nurses

NorthShore Evanston Hospital nurse Chris Bradford, a staff nurse in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), and Autumn Perrault, a labor and delivery nurse, have never met, but both have experienced the benefits of simulation training at the Grainger Center for Simulation and Innovation (GCSI).

“It’s really the ideal learning environment. The scenarios we exercise not only build our confidence, knowledge and skills during high-pressure, critical situations as nurses, but, most importantly, protect our real-life patients. The Center allows us to train in a safe and controlled environment.”
                                     - Autumn Perrault, BSN
