Kendall Regional Medical Center (KRMC) hosted 20 students from Miami Senior High School on Nov. 10 for a “Day in the Life of a Nurse” program.
Mayra McCoy, RN, BSN, MS, KRMC’s director of education, partnered with Natasha Turner, head of the Vocational Department at Miami High, to provide the inspired learning experience.
The students enjoyed interacting with and listening to presentations by people who understand the nursing field like few others including Marcia Causa, RN, MBA, MSN, CCRN; Sehnie Talisayon, RN, BSN; Zenaida Ferro-Rodriguez, RN, BSN; Carmen Hamilton, RN, BSN, MSHSA, and Estela Carmona, RN, BSN. Those presentations, along with department tours, gave these students a true feel for the profession.
All those participating are part of the Medical Assistant Program offered at Miami High, one that promises to inspire many to go into the medical field as they move onto college.
For Kendall Regional Medical Center, this has been an annual activity for almost 10 years. Best of all, it gives the KRMC staff an opportunity to share their passion for nursing with the next generation.
