Carthage College nursing students visit Salem School

/Submitted photo

Recently, students in grades 7 and 8 at Salem School had an exciting opportunity. Carthage College nursing students came to classrooms to share their own paths into the nursing field and to highlight the importance of nurses in our communities.

The Carthage nursing students demonstrated some of the equipment they use in their training and shared practical lessons for healthy living. They also told students about their own paths to the nursing profession, answered questions about what motivated them, and described what the program at Carthage entails. Salem students gained valuable insight into nursing and the medical field though their many questions.

Cameron Swallow, wife of new Carthage College president John Swallow, offered this opportunity to the school. Learning about career fields and how those fields are chosen fits into Academic and Career Planning for students. Salem students are encouraged to learn more about career fields of interest by using their Career Cruising account and through a variety of classroom activities and individual meetings with the school 5th through 8th grade counselor, Judy Richter.
