The Future Nurse Club is an opportunity to learn what nurses do and to get experience working with actual nurses. This program is run by Kendra Elam, one of the directors at the College of Nursing at Michigan State University. There are meetings every other Tuesday after school from 2:45-3:45 in the special dining room.
Students learn about what field of nursing they might want to get into. They also take trips to simulation labs where they can see nurses work in a practice environment.
Senior Deja Cannon has been in the future nurse club for two years and she really enjoys it.
“It’s very informational, fun & hands on,” said senior Deja Cannon. “It tells you many things (about the) field of nursing. I’d recommend it to everyone.”
Also there is a summer program where students can stay on campus for a week at MSU. They go to simulation labs, learn different procedures of a nurse’s job and can also get certified for CPR. The cost is absolutely free.
Anyone who wants to see what it is all about is encouraged to come to the meetings.
