These first-year East Central College nursing students are beginning their journey into the health care field.
The students were in full uniform Tuesday, Oct. 13, for clinical orientation day. Clinicals are a vital, hands-on portion of the nursing program curriculum.
This is the first semester in the ECC Nursing program for these students who were pictured during their Fundamentals of Nursing course. The students are from throughout the area.
The classroom and clinical components of the curriculum are interrelated to provide a strong background for students to become safe and competent practitioners.
ECC offers two programs leading to an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Nursing, which prepare students to become registered nurses.
