On Nov. 10, Kendall Regional Medical Center (KRMC) hosted 20 students from Miami Senior High School for a "Day in the Life of a Nurse" program. KRMC's Director of Education, Mayra McCoy, RN, BSN, M.S., partnered with Natasha Turner, Vocational Dept. Head at Miami Senior High, to provide this inspired learning experience.

at Miami Senior High for the annual Day in the Life of a Nurse program.
The students enjoyed interacting with and listening to presentations by people who understand the nursing field like few others including Marcia Causa, RN, MBA, MSN, CCRN; Sehnie Talisayon, RN, BSN; Zenaida Ferro-Rodriguez, RN, BSN; Carmen Hamilton, RN, BSN, MSHSA; and Estela Carmona, RN, BSN. Those presentations along with department tours gave these students a true feel for the profession. All those participating are part of the Medical Assistant Program offered by Miami Senior High, one that promises to inspire many to go into the medical field as they move onto college.
For Kendall Regional, this has been an annual activity for almost 10 years. Best of all, it gives the KRMC staff an opportunity to share their passion for nursing with the next generation. This is one of many ways Kendall Regional Medical Center provides outreach to the community and certainly one that will inspire more people to select nursing as a career choice.
