Porter to Attend Nightingale Experience
Riley 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.

The 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.
