The Start of Becoming a Nurse

Today students and instructors from the local technical college are here getting their clinical hours for the nursing program at Mercer and Anderson County High schools. We were able to grab a few of the students today and ask them a few questions about their desire to be a nurse.

Katherine Reed, a Senior and Anderson County High School said she was inspired to be a nurse by her instructor Tasha Kelty. After graduation she plans to go on to college to get her RN and work as an ICU nurse.

Shelby Heightched, a Senior at Anderson County High School is following in her Mother and Sister’s footsteps in her journey to become an RN. After receiving her degree she wants to work as a surgical nurse.
