How nice for her! Still no budget plan to speak of... and the state's seemingly-endless sea of red ink has increased by another $165,000 (with absolutely no benefit to the taxpayers). Ms. Arduin had one job (which she was rather handsomely paid to do, at taxpayer expense)... and now she's skipping out on it, before anything of value gets accomplished?? That sure sounds like the definition…

Ms. White's "conversational approach" towards tackling topical issues (with some humor thrown in) sounds like it will be a terrific addition to the Journal's new site. (After all, not everybody wants to read pieces that have been written in the stuffy/self-important style of the New York Times or the Wall Street Journal. I actually prefer to read columnists who don't take themselves…

Blessing-Rieman offers career education open houses

1 year, 4 months ago from Blessing Hospital

Information for learning to become pharmacy technicians and a two-day “Explore Nursing” camp

Blessing-Rieman College of Nursing is holding an open house for people interested in learning to become pharmacy technicians and taking registrations for its two-day “Explore Nursing” camp for high school students. 

Pharmacy Technician Open House

Pharmacy Technician Open House sessions will be held Wednesday, April 23, between 4-6 pm in Room 116 of the College on the Blessing Hospital at 11th Street campus and Wednesday, April 30, between 11 am-1pm in Conference Room C, next to the Blessing Hospital Cafeteria. Those interested in program information, meeting the faculty and learning how to apply can drop by either open house session any time during the two hours. No reservation is needed.

The Pharmacy Technician program is a two semester course. Students complete120 hours of classroom education, including data management skills, pharmaceutical and medical terminology, and the application of scientific principles from chemistry, microbiology, anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology and mathematics related to the job responsibilities of a pharmacy technician.  The clinical component of the course requires students to complete 480 hours of laboratory and on-the-job experience at Blessing Hospital and other participating pharmacies or hospitals in the area.

Pharmacy technicians assist pharmacists in measuring, mixing, counting and labeling medications.  The federal bureau of labor statistics predicts employment growth of about 20 percent for pharmacy technicians over the next eight years.

Explore Nursing

Students age 15-17 are invited to register for the two-day “Explore Nursing,” camp on June 11 and 12, or July 9 and 10.  Ten openings are available in each camp and the registration deadline is May 15. There is no cost for those selected to attend.

Explore Nursing includes a “nurse shadow experience” working side-by-side with Blessing Hospital nurses, and a visit to the BRCN Simulation Center for hands-on experience with computerized patient mannequins.  Students accepted to Explore Nursing will spend the night in Quincy University or Culver-Stockton College’s dormitories, chaperoned by nursing faculty, and served breakfast, lunch and dinner as part of the program.

Each participant will be awarded a $500 scholarship to BRCN. Awarding of the scholarship does not automatically guarantee admission to BRCN. Students must meet all admissions requirements at the time of applying to BRCN.

Upon being selected to attend the Explore Nursing two-day camp, the student will receive a packet of information that will require guardian signature and approval, immunization records, as well as what to pack for the stay and additional details.

Students must apply to attend by visiting www.BeANurse.net, or calling 1-800-877-9140, ext. 6949.
