The Nurses Now Club - 'A Day in the Life' of a Nurse Speakers

The Nurses Now Club sends FPB faculty and BSN students to speak at local high schools, where they discuss the educational path to become a nurse and describe a "day in the life" of different kinds of specialty nurses. Members tour hospitals, participate in nursing case studies, and try to raise the school and community awareness of the current nursing shortage. Meetings are held once a month at Holy Name High School in Parma. At present, there are about 10 students in the group, from high school sophomores to seniors, all of whom are interested in future careers in nursing.
