Can Multiple Cursors Being Opened at the Same Time?

  emp_rec employees%ROWTYPE;
  CURSOR dpt_cur IS SELECT * FROM departments;
  dpt_rec departments%ROWTYPE;
  OPEN emp_cur;
  OPEN dpt_cur;
  FETCH emp_cur INTO emp_rec;
  FETCH dpt_cur INTO dpt_rec;
  DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE('Department name = ' || 
  DBMS_OUTPUT.PUT_LINE('Employee name = ' || 
    emp_rec.first_name || ' ' || emp_rec.last_name); 
  CLOSE emp_cur;
  CLOSE dpt_cur;
Department name = Administration
