Some Radford University nursing students are already using what they've learned to help save lives.
On Sunday, they taught middle school Girl Scout troops in the New River Valley that hope to be babysitters soon about safe sleeping habits for infants.
Simply put, babies should sleep alone, on their backs and in a crib. The goal is to reduce Sudden Infant Death Syndrome or SIDS.
The students are hoping the girls will take what they learned today and also teach it to family, friends and others in the community.
