A successful Nursing Day
March 24, 2012—
More than 170 high school students from around the country attended the School of Nursing’s third annual Nursing Day, an initiative to encourage the next generation of nurses to study at LAU, on March 21 at the Byblos campus.
The day included an introduction to the SON undergraduate program’s faculty and interdisciplinary curriculum, as well as tours of the school’s state-of-the-art labs and other facilities. Prospective students had the chance to get hands-on practice with various nursing skills, as well as ask questions about the program’s multiple financial aid opportunities.
In the Byblos campus's Selina Korban Auditorium, SON Assistant Dean Dr. Myrna Doumit welcomes high school students from around Lebanon.
Dr. Nancy Hoffart, SON founding dean, engages prospective students in a blood pressure-taking demonstration.
Rana Slaiby and Ghada Abi Fares from the Admissions and Financial Aid Offices, respectively, take questions from BSN 2 students about the application process.
Students arrive by the dozens from Aley, Tripoli, the Bekaa, and the region of Kesrouan to participate in LAU Nursing Day.
High school students visiting the Clinical Simulation Center are invited to try different activities, such as CPR.
