High School Students Interested in Nursing are Invited to an Information Session

Submitted by on July 1, 2011 – 12:39 pm

High School students interested in becoming nurses are invited to an information session hosted by Northern Essex Community College on Wednesday, June 1, 2011.  Free and open to the public, the session will be held on the Haverhill Campus, 100 Elliott St, in the Spurk Building, Lecture Hall A.  The program starts at 4 p.m. but those attending are asked to arrive 10 minutes before 4 p.m.

Pat Demers, assistant dean of health professions at NECC, designed this event to give students a glimpse into the daily life of a nursing student.  This presentation is geared toward the specific issues facing students entering NECC’s program directly out of high school. Issues such as admissions standards and the rigorous pace of the program will be discussed. This is a perfect opportunity for students and their parents to hear what is required for a high school student to be successful in the nursing program and to ask any questions they may have.

Northern Essex offers a Certificate in Practical Nursing and an Associate of Science Degree in Nursing.  Both programs are offered on the college’s Lawrence campus.  For additional information about the programs, visit the website
