St. John’s College to Host High School Students to Spark Interest in Nursing


SPRINGFIELD—St. John’s College of Nursing invites high school students and members of the community to explore the college. On Monday, July 16 from 4-6 p.m., guests will learn what it takes to be a nurse, meet faculty, tour the campus and Simulation Center and enjoy a barbeque in the courtyard. By having the event, the college hopes to spark interest in nursing as a career option. Some students may be interested in the field, but don’t know how to get started. St. John’s College gives students a direct path to becoming a Registered Nurse, Family Nurse Practitioner or many other options in the nursing field. Hospitals around the country are facing a nursing shortage, and St. John’s College hopes to combat this issue by providing more education and resources for prospective students. *St. John’s College faculty and staff are available this week for interviews to discuss the event. The college is located at 729 E. Carpenter Street, Springfield. ###
