School of Nursing holds healthcare exploration day

February 13, 2024

The Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing hosted a healthcare exploration day Jan. 30, for more than 100 local high school students from Cape Henlopen, Indian River, Sussex Central, Sussex Tech and Milford high schools.

Students explored a variety of healthcare pathways, including nursing, respiratory therapy, physical therapy, pharmacy, diagnostic imaging, the medical residency, Beebe Medical Group, sterile processing, volunteer services and talent acquisition.

The event was focused on engaging future healthcare workers on the variety of opportunities and pathways that Beebe provides to continue to recruit and retain professionals for the community. In addition, local colleges and universities were on site to provide information on how many of these certifications and degrees can be pursued.

“This was a tremendous collaborative effort by many Beebe team members,” said Alison Watson, faculty and student nurse recruiter from the Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing. “We hope to continue to provide interactive and engaging relationships with our local high schools and students who will be the future of healthcare in Sussex County.”
