Waynesburg University will host Nursing as a Career Day Thursday, Oct. 5, for high school students interested in pursuing nursing. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. in room 104 of the Center for Research and Economic Development on the campus of Waynesburg University. Sessions will begin promptly at 9:15 a.m.

“Nursing as a Career Day is an important recruitment event that not only highlights the Nursing Program but also allows prospective students to interact with faculty in the lab and ask questions to current students,” said Dr. Nancy Mosser, chair and director of the Department of Nursing and professor of nursing.

The day will highlight Waynesburg’s Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing; it will include tours, meetings with faculty, financial aid information and lunch. Additionally, prospective students will be given the opportunity to have a discussion with student representatives of Waynesburg University’s Student Nurses Association of Pennsylvania.

Students will also have the opportunity to explore the University’s sophisticated simulation lab with Waynesburg University nursing faculty and nursing students. Specifically, students will learn how Waynesburg’s nursing students experience complex patient care in simulated situations and discover how the simulation lab provides an effective environment for students to learn and apply cognitive, psychomotor and decision-making skills for clinical practice.

Waynesburg University’s Nursing Program has consistently been recognized for excellence both regionally and nationally. Earlier this year, RegisteredNursing.org ranked Waynesburg’s baccalaureate program No. 2 in the state of Pennsylvania.

Additionally, Nursing Schools Almanac has ranked Waynesburg No. 49 in the nation, earning a spot in the top 1.5 percent of the more than 3,200 schools considered.

Founded in 1849 by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Waynesburg University is located on a traditional campus in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania, with three additional sites located in the Pittsburgh region. The University is one of only 21 Bonner Scholar schools in the country, offering local, regional and international opportunities to touch the lives of others through service.
