County High School student, Jennifer Porter, was one of 40 applicants excepted
to attend the Nightingale Experience at Fort Hays State University February
26th and 27th. Jennifer's cost to attend the program will be covered by
Clay County Medical Center.
Jennifer, who is currently a junior at RCHS, is considering a career in
either nursing or physical therapy. "I am looking forward to attending
the Nightingale Experience to further explore whether or not nursing is
a fit for me," Porter said.
Nightingale Experience is a two-day event that promotes the nursing profession.
Students get a real feel for what a career in nursing is all about including
educational opportunities and the working environment. Attendees will
visit the FHSU department of nursing, observe clinical activities at the
hospital, and have the opportunity to meet with the faculty.
