Successful Parents and Families Weekend
The College of Nursing welcomed nearly 150 parents and family members at Penn State’s annual Parents and Families Weekend October 13–15, 2017. Our “Carnival of Health” featured carnival-themed games to demonstrate how we educate nurses and promote health. We provided tours of the simulation lab and offered height, weight, and blood pressure screenings. We also shared information on current happenings in research, educational technology, and our Center of Geriatric Nursing Excellence. Several faculty and staff members partnered with SNAP volunteers to showcase our programs.
