“Nurse for a Day” Program at Marywood

Due to an enthusiastic response, an additional date for Marywood University’s “Nurse for a Day” program has been planned to accommodate interested prospective nursing students.

On both Wednesday, March 16, and Wednesday, March 23, from 8:30 a.m.–1 p.m., the program will occur in the Center for Natural and Health Sciences on the University’s campus. Both events are free and open to those interested in a nursing degree.

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in CPR training and Simulation and Nursing Lab activities. A tour of Marywood’s campus will be provided, as well as lunch, at which attendees can meet with nursing faculty members.

The “Nurse for a Day” program provides prospective nursing students with the opportunity to explore and find resources available to them. By speaking with faculty and current nursing students, attendees get a clearer picture about the types of classes, course material, and clinical work involved with a nursing major.

Marywood’s nursing department provides academic and clinical coursework to prepare students to provide health care services in a variety of settings. Graduates of the undergraduate program have unlimited opportunities in hospitals and school and nursing home settings. Other areas of practice include pharmaceuticals, research, consulting, management, and administration. Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) graduates may also choose to continue their education in pursuit of a career as a nurse practitioner, nurse anesthetist, or educator.

To attend “Nurse for a Day,” register by March 9 at marywood.edu/NurseForADay for a session. Registration is available on a first-come, first-served basis. For additional information about Marywood’s nursing program, please visit www.marywood.edu/nursing, or call (570) 348-6275.
