This summer, eighth-grade
students with an interest in the nursing profession will have a chance to spend
time working alongside real nurses in real hospital environments during the
three-day Southern West Virginia Junior Nursing Academy, June 19-21.
Students in the academy will
attend classes on WVU Tech’s campus in Beckley, take skill labs with Bluefield
State College professors at the Erma Byrd Higher Education Center, participate
in a simulated operating room experience at Raleigh General Hospital and engage
in a simulated emergency trauma experience at Appalachian Regional Hospital.
