Pittsburgh, May 29 — Students in 8th, 9th and 10th grade who have an interest in a nursing career can explore their futures at the Summer Nursing Institute, sponsored by La Roche College, UPMC Passavant and UPMC Passavant Cranberry, the Theta Mu Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau (Nursing Honor Society) and Johnson & Johnson’s “The Campaign for Nursing’s Future.”

The Summer Nursing Institute was created to help introduce students with an interest in medical careers to the “exciting, challenging and rewarding career of nursing,” according to La Roche Department of Nursing Professor Lynette Beattie, R.N., M.S.N.

“Nursing is the nation’s largest health care profession, and nurses encounter many challenges – and rewards – in their daily experiences,” Ms. Beattie said. “We want future nurses to see all that nursing offers.”

The cost of the program is $20, and sponsors are hoping to keep the class size small so that students may receive personal attention during their experience. Because of the Memorial Day holiday, registration has been extended through Friday, June 8. Students may register by e-mailing Ms. Beattie at
