Nursing Fair Leads to Big Opportunities

On February 1st, 26 employers from the healthcare industry gathered in the Alumni Ballroom for the Nursing Career Fair. Bright conversations and laughter filled the room as students and employers shared their passion for helping others through healthcare.

Recruiters from Penn Medicine, Centra Health, Samaritan’s Purse, and countless other organizations were looking for students interested in externships and full-time positions. Above all else, they were looking for students unafraid to take initiative, come up to their table, and ask questions.

Recruiters from Duke Health shared that they also look for students who are personable and engaging. “Students should see it as a conversation. We want to get to know them and we want them to get to know us!”

The students did not disappoint. They came prepared, resumes in hand, eager to learn more about organizations and find opportunities that fit their unique strengths and passions. The room was buzzing with excitement as 274 students (the highest attendance of a nursing fair) connected with employers and made steps toward their future.

Lavonne Abe, the career coach for the School of Nursing, said that she loves seeing students find amazing opportunities. “It’s so encouraging to the students. Employers are looking at their resumes, students are getting interviews, and they’re building relationships.”

This career fair is just the beginning of an exciting journey for countless nursing students. With their desire to serve the Lord and bring His light to those in need, the career fair was about more than just solidifying a career; it’s an opportunity to lean into God’s calling for their lives. We cannot wait to see all of the opportunities that come from this event!
