Students interested in working in healthcare, got a rare opportunity to get a hands on feel for the industry. Hundreds of high school juniors and seniors got an up close and personal glimpse of possible careers they could choose after graduating. The event, called “Adventures in Healthcare” featured several different career choices including nursing, pharmacy, radiology and emergency services. “We hope the students that attend “Adventures in Healthcare” today will walk away with a better sense of an understanding of healthcare careers and whether or not this is for them,” said Jan Williams, a college career nursing recruiter with West Tennessee Healthcare. “Healthcare careers are not for everyone so, today I want them to walk out and just have a better vision of what it takes to be in health care. ” Organizers said they believe the event is both fun and educational for students.
