College offers Nursing and Health Career Fairs: Aug. 4 - 6

July 10, 2014

The Anoka-Ramsey Community College Student Nursing Association (SNA) is hosting opportunities to learn about the comprehensive Nursing programs offered at the college:

  • Monday, Aug. 4, 10 am to 2pm, Cambridge Campus G201
  • Tuesday, Aug. 5 and Wednesday, Aug. 6, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Coon Rapids Campus Legacy Room (SC272)

The events will include representatives from universities with bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate programs, nursing book, scrubs and nursing supplies companies, aromatherapy and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) programs.  Prizes will be offered, and food will be available for purchase.

“The Nursing and Health Career Fair is an excellent opportunity for current and potential students who are interested in a nursing or health-related field to network with students, faculty members, vendors, educational institutions, advisors, and alternative therapy practitioners,” said Sandra Kohler, Anoka-Ramsey Nursing Faculty member and an event organizer. “With the high demand for health care workers, we are hoping a lot of community members attend one of the fairs.”

The Anoka-Ramsey Community College nursing program is a member of the Minnesota Alliance for Nursing Education (MANE) consortium. MANE is an innovative nursing education consortium between a state university and seven community colleges. This partnership includes Metropolitan State University, Anoka-Ramsey Community College, Century College, Inver Hills Community College, Normandale Community College, North Hennepin Community College, Ridgewater College, and Riverland Community College. This transformative approach to nursing education encourages deep understanding of key nursing concepts while addressing the changing health care environment.

The college also partners with other universities to offer register nurse (RN) to bachelor of science in Nursing (BSN) degree completion programs at each Anoka-Ramsey campus.
