Male nursing open house, Friday

The University of Lethbridge School of Health Sciences is looking for a few good men . . . to become nurses.

Interest in what would be considered a non-traditional career choice for men a few years ago is growing, thanks to the diversity of practice, the excellent career opportunities and the overall stability.

Health Sciences representatives are hosting a one-day open house Friday, Feb. 13 for men interested in changing to a health-care career. There are several ways in which students can gain entry into the Bachelor of Nursing program and the Bachelor of Nursing After Degree program.

Faculty members who are Registered Nurses will be available to discuss their career paths, along with several U of L male students currently enrolled in School of Health Sciences programs.

The open house and information session takes place in Anderson Hall, room AH117 beginning at 9 a.m. and running until 4 p.m. Tours of the classroom areas and the new nursing skills lab will run throughout the day.

There is no cost to participate, but registration is suggested. Please RSVP via e-mail to Peter Kellett or call 403-329-2643.
