Workshop Spotlight: Nursing

Last week, HALO youth had the opportunity to participate in a nursing workshop hosted by William Jewel School of Nursing. Nursing students explained how to prepare for a college readiness path and shared resources with the youth about scholarships and grants. HALO youth had hands-on opportunities as they explored various nursing tools such as a stethoscope, blood pressure monitor, and reflex hammer. There was also a hand washing experiment that allowed youth to see how well they were washing their hands. We loved seeing HALO youth explore a new career path and can see many of the participants becoming successful nurses in the future! Special thanks to William Jewel College for hosting the workshop and for donating art supplies to the center.
