Calhoun Community College to Host Spring Nursing Recruitment FairMarch 5, 2020
The Calhoun Community College Career Services team will host its Annual Spring Nursing Recruitment Fair on Monday, March 9, 9:00 am – 11:00 am in the Advanced Technology Center on the Decatur campus.
“Students enrolled in Calhoun’s Nursing programs receive extensive hands-on training alongside soft skills that are both equally crucial to their success in the workforce,” commented Dr. Lynn Hogan, Calhoun Nursing Department Chair. The recruitment fair is designed specifically for those students who plan to graduate this May, current nursing students, as well as pre-nursing students looking to enter the workforce soon.
“Each year this event draws a large number of area employers in which students have the opportunity to practice fundamentals that are taught in their respective programs during the student to employer networking segment. They can also receive resume feedback from company representatives and possibly be interviewed on-site with those employers who are looking to fill open positions,” commented Kelli Morris, Calhoun Director of Career Services and Co-op Learning.
“Although it is a not a job fair, students should still come well prepared as nurses are in extreme high demand in North Alabama,” added Morris.
Huntsville Hospital, Cullman Regional Medical Center, North Alabama Medical Center, Home Instead Senior Care, The Sanctuary at the Woodlands and Athens Health and Rehab, LLC plan to be in attendance. In conjunction with employers, a few area universities such as the University of Alabama in Huntsville, The University of Alabama, Jacksonville State University, and Auburn University will also be present to provide information regarding Bachelor of Science in Nursing
(BSN), Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) as well as other programs to those students who are interested in furthering their nursing education.
The success of this recruitment fair will foster opportunities for Calhoun’s nursing students in the future with hopes of filling the current skills gap for nurses.
