Several WVU School of Nursing students volunteered during the seventh annual WVU Rural Health Day, hosted April 1 at the WVU Health Sciences Center.

Nursing students Sydney Cain, Laura Keene, Meredith Maneno, Kristen May and Grace Wilson offered hands-on demonstrations of nursing skills inside the WV Simulation Training and Education for Patient Safety (STEPS) Center, such as blood pressure and heart rate readings, as well as how to set up IV fluids and provide proper wound care.

The purpose of WVU Rural Health Day is to give undergraduate pre-health students interested in rural healthcare the opportunity to hear about and participate in activities that will enhance, impassion, and provide support them in their healthcare journey.

WVU Rural Health Day is jointly sponsored by the WVU Institute for Community and Rural Health, Pre-Health Professional Development Office, School of Medicine and Rural Track Programs and WV AHEC.
