Students learn about careers in nursing

A group of area high school and community college students interested in careers in nursing will get their questions answered during Pittsburg State University's Nursing Career Day on March 30 in McPherson Hall. Students in the Nursing Department’s senior leadership class will teach a variety of focus sessions that will include demonstrations on things like starting an IV and even cardiac care. The PSU students will even perform a mock Code Blue. Nursing Career Day begins at 9 a.m. and concludes at 1:30 p.m.

Mary Carol Pomatto, chairman of PSU’s Department of Nursing, said Nursing Career Day not only helps visiting students learn about the nursing profession and the programs Pittsburg State offers, but also is a good learning and leadership experience for the PSU students who conduct the sessions.
