Stevenson University sixth annual nursing career fair will be held on Nov. 21, 2016, in the Rockland banquet room from noon until 2:30 p.m. This event gives nursing students, including graduates and alumni, the opportunity to learn about internships and career options at hospitals and companies in the healthcare field.
This collaborative event between the nursing department and the Office of Career Services will have attendance from 24 organizations that are hiring for internships, full-time, part-time and seasonal positions. Some of the organizations include Catonsville Army Recruiting Center, Penn State Hershey Medical Center, the Johns Hopkins Hospital, the University of Maryland Medical System, Children’s National Health System, and many more.
“I believe all nursing students should attend the event,” said Jacqueline Goetz, the coordinator of the Nursing Career Fair in the Office of Career Services. “For underclassmen, this is the perfect opportunity to learn from employers the qualifications they are looking for, to learn more about prospective employers, and to see what kind of internship/externships will be available to them as they move through their program.”
Upperclassmen, graduate students and alumni can use this fair as an opportunity to find positions in their field of study that match their interests. Sophomore Jamie Goretsas, who aspires to be an ER nurse, intends to use this opportunities to find an internship that will relates to this specific field of nursing.
“It seems appealing to me, and I hope to see some of the nursing professors there to give me helpful information about my future, especially getting a job after I pass my NCLEX,” said Keri Whitehaus, a sophomore nursing student. NCLEX, which stands for National Council Licensure Examination, is the exam that nurses take in order to get their license to practice.
Students can register for this event through the Handshake application on the Stevenson SUNOW portal. All attendees are encouraged to dress professionally and bring their reviewed and updated resumes.
