The Kirkhof College of Nursing took part in the Michigan Women’s Foundation University of Life program for the second year in a row. This week-long residential on-campus experience preparing middle school girls for success in high school, college, career and community, focuses on helping young ladies understand how their talents relate to high potential careers. “U of L” is an immersive lesson in entrepreneurship, STEM professions, and leadership, with a healthy emphasis on self-esteem, body image, financial literacy and social responsibility.
Kirkhof College of Nursing senior advisor, Angela Caruso, worked alongside College of Health Professions advisor, Jennie Glynn, to provide an overview of the many career opportunities available within health sciences and the education necessary to pursue them. GVSU’s Simulation Center team organized the three-part session for 32 participants held at the Cook DeVos Center for Health Sciences on August 2, 2017.
