Hands-On Healthcare Program to Focus on Nursing


Hands-on Healthcare, a program designed to help students and community members learn more about healthcare careers, is coming to Passavant Area Hospital next month.

Hands-On Healthcare will be 2 to 4:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 18, in Meeting Room 4. The Feb. 18 program will explore nursing and allow participants to experience simulations in surgery, intensive care, general nursing and the Emergency Department. Participants will also receive advice for career planning.

Parent/guardian permission is required for those under age 18. Additional programs on other healthcare careers will be offered later in the year.
