NSU Students and Faculty Participate in the Day in the Life of a Nurse

SB1

On Friday, October 5, 2018, students and faculty from the Ron and Kathy Assaf College of Nursing, participated in the Day in the Life of a Nurse. The Nursing Consortium of South Florida, a coalition of hospitals, nursing schools, and health care staffing organizations, organizes this annual event to promote partnerships with South Florida public school districts and many private high schools and middle schools. The Fort Lauderdale Entry-Level Nursing Program welcomed 27 students and 3 teachers from Falcon Cove Middle School, Weston, FL to our nursing lab facilities located at the Health Professions Division Annex. The middle school students had the opportunity to learn about the nursing profession by working with entry-level nursing students and faculty. The day began with entry-level BSN nursing students and faculty sharing their individual stories that led them to a nursing career as well as highlighting their experiences at Nova Southeastern University. Various hands-on activities were provided for the middle school students such as taking vital signs, handwashing, and working with high-fidelity simulators. This is the sixth year Fort Lauderdale campus has participated in the Day in the Life of a Nurse.
