UAF is reviewing Clinical Procedures professor Sherry Wolf after she instructed students in her medical assistant class to practice repeatedly injecting each other with a solution that is not intended for human use.

Officials at UAF believe around 30 students received injections of  simulated 0.9 percent sodim chlorde injection, according to the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner. Students experienced burning sensations and skin irritation after the injections. When students contacted the manufacturer, they were instructed to stop using the solution immediately.

The warning on sodim chlorde reads "For educational purposes Only. Not for human or animal use!" Screenshot from Pocket Nurse.

According to student-teacher evaluations published on the ASUAF website, Wolf is a generally well-regarded professor at UAF.
