West Shore Community College hosts Nursing Career Day

Students and alumni can connect with employers

SCOTTVILLE — Nursing Career Day, an annual event sponsored by West Shore Community College Nursing and Allied Health Division, will be held from 10 a.m. to noon, Wednesday, March 8, in the Tech Center atrium on the WSCC campus. 

Now in its 21st year, NCD is designed to create a forum for WSCC nursing students and alumni to connect with employers, particularly hospitals, healthcare-related organizations, as well as graduate schools of nursing.

“This event is organized by the Nursing department and always offers an opportunity to make helpful contacts, whether a nursing job search is for the immediate future or a little further out,” Director of Nursing and Allied Health Shelley Boes said. “It gives our students an opportunity to speak with prospective employers and colleges/universities for those students wishing to further their education beyond West Shore. Many students have found employment from this event and the students have been busy preparing their resumes and thinking about questions they might ask of the vendors related to education or employment.” 

Over twenty hospitals, healthcare-related organizations, and colleges/universities are scheduled to be represented at this year’s event.  The event is organized specifically for graduating RN students. First level nursing students, M.A. students, CNA, and CTE Allied Health students are also invited.
