Waynesburg University will host Nursing as a Career Day for high school students interested in pursuing a career in nursing Thursday, Oct. 11. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. in room 104 of the Center for Research and Economic Development on campus.
Nursing as a Career Day highlights Waynesburg’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. The day will include tours, meetings with faculty, financial aid information and lunch. Participants will also have the opportunity to meet with Waynesburg’s student representatives of the Student Nurses Association of Pennsylvania.
During the tours, participants will explore the University’s sophisticated simulation lab with nursing faculty and students. The high school students will learn how Waynesburg 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.
In addition to its Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree, Waynesburg University also offers an RN to BSN program, Master of Science degree in Nursing, Master of Science in Nursing/Master of Business Administration program and a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree.
