WAYNESBURG – Waynesburg University will host Nursing Awareness Day Oct. 10 for high school students interested in the nursing field.
Events will begin at 9:15 in room 104 of the Center for Research and Economic Development on campus.
Students will spend the day exploring the university’s simulation lab with nursing faculty and students and will learn how nursing students experience complex patient care in simulated situations. Students also will discover how the simulation lab provides an effective environment for students to learn and apply cognitive, psychomotor and decision-making skills for clinical practice.
“From the first year students are admitted to the program, our nursing students experience clinical practice and learn in well-equipped simulation facilities,” said Nancy Mosser, professor of nursing and chair and director of the university’s department of nursing.
“Our program quality is indicated by routinely high NCLEX pass rates and high employment rates.”
In addition to its bachelor of science degree in nursing, the university also offers a master of science degree in nursing and a doctor of nursing practice degree.
The bachelor of science degree in nursing, which will be highlighted during the event, provides a rigorous curriculum that prepares students to work in a challenging health care environment.
The day will include tours, meetings with faculty, financial aid information and lunch.
