OCTC President Dr. Scott Williams added, This is a great opportunity for students to see if nursing is the right fit for them. This creates a safe space for students to try it out and see if it is something they can be passionate about."
Participants will receive a t-shirt, and a practice kit. Interested students should contact their high school guidance counselor or email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application. Space is limited to the first 20 applicants, but sessions may be added based on level of interest.
