Every year, Palm Beach Atlantic School of Nursing presents A Day in the Life of a Nurse. This day-long event is designed to give local middle school students a realistic picture of what a day in the life of a nurse is like. Earlier this month, we welcomed a class from L.C. Swain Middle School in Lake Worth.
At this event, our PBA student nurses dressed the part in their blue scrubs and answered any questions the students had from the middle school. Our students and faculty also taught the middle school students various skills such as correct hand washing techniques and how to check vital signs. Towards the end of the day, our PBA Nursing Faculty and Staff were able to discuss potential nursing career options with the middle students. Everyone enjoyed a Chick-Fil-A lunch together at the end of the day, and it was a successful event for all.
