Wayne County Students Visit Kent State Stark’s Nursing Lab
Kent State University at Stark recently hosted 26 high school seniors from Wayne County Schools Career Center. The students, who are all enrolled in the center’s Patient Care Technologies program, met with Kent State Stark’s Nursing Department faculty and toured the nursing laboratory located in the recently opened Science and Nursing Building.
Chrissy Kauth, associate lecturer of nursing, and Dawn Richards, adjunct nursing technician, spoke to the seniors about their career choice and gave them a tour of the state-of-the-art facility, which includes high-fidelity, computerized human patients in the forms of newborn, child and adult simulators.
The nursing program, one of 18 bachelor’s degrees that can be completed in their entirety at Kent State Stark, is part of Ohio’s largest academic program for nursing – the sixth largest program in the nation, educating the majority of Northeast Ohio’s registered nurses.
