Pre-Nursing and Health Science Students Attend Meet and Greet

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – The College of Nursing and Health Sciences (CONHS) at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi held its fall 2013 Meet and Greet for pre-nursing and health science students on Wednesday, Oct. 16.

During the event, which was held in the second floor nursing simulation labs in Island Hall, attendees had the opportunity to learn more about the CONHS program, tour the nursing facilities, meet nursing advisors, and professors.

“We’ve held these open houses each semester for the last four and a half years,” said Leigh Shaver, Assistant Clinical Professor and event organizer. “We want to make sure our freshmen and sophomore students feel welcomed and show them our state-of-the-art facilities.”

Multiple campus organizations including the Center for Academic Student Achievement and the ROTC Islander Battalion were present at the event to inform students about campus resources that could help guide them down a successful path.

“This is the perfect chance for students who are unsure or fear they can’t handle the course load of the program to get more information on ways to succeed and graduate,” said Cynthia Putman-Ramirez, who is in the nursing program.

During the event, participants were allowed to enter classes where students were demonstrating hands-on learning.
