VT Guard hosts trauma care training with North Macedonia
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. —
Lt. Col. Sarah Davis, clinical nurse assigned to the 158th Medical Group, Vermont Air National Guard, logs on to her computer for a three-day, virtual trauma nurse training – the new normal during the COVID-19 pandemic. On another continent, time zones away, more than 10 nurses in the North Macedonian Armed Forces were also at home and logging onto their computers Sept. 28. These nurses, much like those in the Vermont National Guard, work in clinical environments and also train for contingency operations, similar to training over a drill weekend.
