Cedarville, Ohio—It’s no secret that Americans enjoy their medical dramas. From "M.A.S.H." to "ER" and, more recently, "House," we like to see intelligent doctors and nurses try to find the right cure for their patients. But, for some, such fictional drama cannot compare to a real-life career in nursing. That’s why Cedarville University invites high school students leaning in that direction to learn more at the University’s Nursing Day on Saturday, Jan. 31.

All prospective high school students and their families are invited to witness Cedarville's nursing program up close. Current students will demonstrate a mock “code” situation and take vital signs, as well as talk about cross-cultural nursing. They will host a Q&A session about the rigor of the program and how it prepares students for a life-long career.

“The overview of the program and the hands-on activities will give a very accurate and solidified picture of nursing,” shares Sarah Clift, assistant director of admissions. “Opportunities like this help students decide if it is a profession they are interested in entering.”

Attendees will also have the opportunity to tour the campus, grab a drink at the campus coffee shop Vecinos, and learn more about loans and grants at a financial aid workshop. Lunch in the dining hall will offer an array of distinctive food options, including Mexican, home cooking and vegetarian. The day finishes with dorm tours where they will see why Cedarville students call their room “home” and their hallmates “family.”
