If you are a student in the Registered Nursing, Practical Nursing, Respiratory Care or Medical Laboratory Technician programs, then consider joining the Health Professions Club.
The club, which meets monthly, plans campus programs and events based on health-related issues. Members of the club also provide health information at a table in the Berks Hall lobby each month.
The club is a great chance to network with other students, learn something new and have some fun.
