•    Day in the Life of a Nurse
TM – This annual event provides middle and high school students with a one-day peek at the world of nursing.  While the program activities vary per hosting clinical site, students and their teachers, counselors, and chaperones learn about the many career opportunities within the nursing profession through speakers, video presentations, and, of course, through the shadowing experience and hospital tours that are the highlight of the day.  At many facilities students also participate in skills lab exercises and are introduced to some of the technology that nurses use daily in managing the care of their patients.  To view some of the materials prepared for participating hospitals and other hosting sites, please click here. A recorded teacher training program and curriculum development materials are available for participating schools, please click here for additional information and web links. Participating students are surveyed before and after their Day in the Life of a NurseTM experience.  To view the 2008 student survey report, please click here.
