Wayne County Students Visit Nursing Lab
Kent State University at Stark hosted 26 high school seniors from Wayne County Schools Career Center on Thursday, March 3. 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 Stark Campus’ nursing program, one of Kent State Stark’s 18 bachelor’s degrees that can be completed in their entirety, 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.
