This program is offered monthly during the school year, September through April, meeting one Wednesday of the month from 9:00 a.m. to Noon at Union Hospital. A Community Health and Wellness Registered Nurse will meet the students at the Information Desk of Union Hospital's Main Entrance. She will then guide the students to visit a number of nursing departments in the hospital for observation and basic hands-on activities when available in the following departments: Cardiology, Education, Emergency, Maternity, and Inpatient Rehabilitation. After the tour, a lunch is provided by Union Hospital while discussing the experience and asking questions
Students who attend a Nursing Career Exploration are invited to join with others interested in a nursing career to visit the KSU Tuscarawas School of Nursing to meet the faculty and learn more about nursing education. The KSU visits are made in December and April.
Each Nursing Career Exploration Program is limited to eight students and these events fill quickly. Click here for the hospital's online Health Events calendar and look at future months to register online.
