School of Nursing Hosts Open House

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

The School of Nursing at the University of West Georgia will host its first open house for the community on Thursday, April 30, from 1 to 3 p.m. Light refreshments will be served and the community is invited to attend.

Students and faculty will demonstrate state-of-the-art simulators such as SimMan, a lifelike patient who exhibits medical trauma, and NOELLE, a model that can be pregnant, giving birth and post-pregnant. The computerized models allow student nurses to experience realistic situations that nurses encounter on duty.

Information on nursing programs offered at the university and at the Newnan Center will be available. The school offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in nursing as well as a Bachelors in Nursing Science for licensed RNs. Classes are also offered at   Dalton and Rome.

Visitors to the open house will also have the opportunity to receive a free blood pressure screening by UWG students in the Georgia Association of Nursing Students.

The event will take place in the Education Annex. For more information on the School of Nursing, call 678-839-6552 or visit http://www.westga.edu/~nurs/.
