UACCM 'Learn, Preview, Nursing' Day a Success

Participants experienced the delivery of a simulated child.
UACCM hosted a special "Learn, Preview, Nursing" day on July 25 to showcase the offerings of its licensed practical nursing program.

Due to the high-demand of the program and with the fall semester quickly approaching, UACCM hosted the free event for anyone in the area who may be interested in the LPN program.  The day started with a presentation explaining what to expect as a nursing student featuring nursing department faculty and admissions staff.  Attendees were given a tour of the UACCM campus, an overview of the free services available to students, and assistance in completing financial aid forms.

The three-hour preview also included a special session in working with high-fidelity mannequins from the nursing department's simulation lab.  This session featured the simulated birth of a child with hands-on opportunities for participants to examine the mannequins and work with some of the advanced technology that UACCM nursing students use every day.

The event served as a great opportunity for those interested to look further into the program and its offerings.  In addition to these types of specialized events, UACCM offers tours of campus to prospective students on a regular basis.  Schedule an appointment by contacting admissions staff at 501-977-2053 or visit www.uaccm.edu to stay up-to-date on future events.
