Future Nurses Academy shows kids what the life of a nurse is like
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
Kids got to experience the life of a nurse Saturday at the Discovery Center Museum at the Future Nurses Academy.
Children could get their hands on real-life nursing equipment. From inspecting germs to making a stethoscope, nursing students from St. Anthony's helped these future nurses "graduate" when they checked all the activities off of their nursing schedule.
"Kids that are interested in nursing this gives them a head start to know that yeah this really is what I want to do," said Corinne Sosso, the Director of Education at the Discovery Center. "And those that maybe aren't sure yet can get a glimpse of what it would be like."
This was the second year St. Anthony's and the Discovery Center Museum teamed up for the Future Nurses Academy.
