Monroe, Ga. (Nov. 10, 2023) – Ask a young child what he or she would like to be when they grow up, and many will tell you they want to be a doctor or a nurse, and for many of those children, that desire to help and heal others stays with them into high school.
Recently, Piedmont Walton and Piedmont Newton hospitals participated in the Social Circle High School Career Fair and had an opportunity to speak with students interested in a career in medicine, maybe even staying close to home and working at a Piedmont facility.
Students who stopped by the booth had the opportunity to speak with representatives from the hospitals, including nurses, who provided a look at the day-to-day duties of hospital nursing. The students also played games that taught them about medication management, diagnostic testing, infection prevention, and patient care.
