Waynesburg University will host its annual Nursing as a Career Day event Thursday, Oct. 10, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on its main campus in Waynesburg. The event is open to current junior and senior high school students interested in pursuing a career in nursing.
“Nursing as a Career day is an excellent event for students interested in nursing to come to campus and spend the day with the Nursing Department,” said Kyle DiGiandomenico, admissions counselor. “With nursing being such a high-demand career, we’re excited to welcome these students to campus and show them all the opportunities they’ll have in our program.”

Additionally, students will experience the University’s state-of-the-art simulation lab, which provides an effective environment for students to learn and apply cognitive, psychomotor and decision-making skills for clinical practice. Attendees will also learn how Waynesburg students learn first-hand complex patient care in simulated situations.
