Future Nurses


Saturday, April 18;

11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Come to Discovery Center and see what it’s like to be a nurse! From checking

X-Rays to taking blood pressure, kids of all ages can get their hands on real equipment, talk to real nurses, and make the rounds on this day of medical fun. Take home a working stethoscope; mix an ointment; get a cast, check reflexes, and more!  Those who finish their nursing schedule will receive a pin at “graduation”!

Included with Discovery Center admission.

Sponsored by Saint Anthony College of Nursing.
