Nightingale Experience - July 17 & 18, 2018

Nightingale Group 2013

High School sophomores and juniors--are you thinking about a career in nursing?

Named for Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, the Nightingale experience is designed to give students a glimpse into the life of a nurse and a preview of college life.

Spend day one of the event alongside nursing faculty who will introduce participants to the curriculum they will learn as nursing students in the classroom and experience in the simulation lab with state of the art, high-fidelity mannequins that provide students with real life clinical scenarios. Students will enjoy social activities and stay overnight in one of the Fort Hays State University dorms. Day two is sure to be full of revelations as students rotate through various units at Hays Medical Center as they shadow professional nurses.

NIGHTINGALE EXPERIENCE APPLICATION- The application deadline is April 1.
