School children examine the nursing profession

Fifth graders from Quitman Elementary School will get a glimpse of college life and examine career choices available to them in the field of nursing. The students will arrive at Valdosta State University's Martin Hall, on March 11 at approximately 9:30 a.m.

The students will tour the university's campus and talk to college students about nursing as a career option. The day's events are sponsored by the College of Nursing and include information on diet and nutrition and the importance of exercise, along with the proper way to take a persons' blood pressure and other medical procedures.
