Learning About Nursing
Seventh grade AVID students learned about careers in the medical field when three student nurses from St. Joseph's College of Nursing came to speak to their class on Friday, March 4th. Not only did students learn about the various types of nursing, but they also learned about the classes nurses need to take to prepare for college as well as those required to earn their degree. Finally, students were able to learn how to "scrub up" before entering the rooms of patients with highly contagious infections like MRSA.
