Towson nursing students at USMH attend conference

Students serve as judges at occupations skills event

May 19, 2013

The nursing students from Towson University at University System of Maryland at Hagerstown attended and participated in the Health Occupations Students of America  competition as judges for the state event on April 18.

It was the 34th annual state leadership conference, which was held in Lancaster, Pa. The health occupations program is a national organization and leadership component for future health care professionals in both secondary and post-secondary related health programs.

The skills judged by the Towson nursing students involved aspects of community service, leadership and specific nursing skills within the health care discipline. 

The partnership between the two organizations was initiated two years ago by Delores Homan, co-director of competitive events for the health occupations organization and Towson Professor Janet McMahon. The nursing students and faculty gave community service time to attend the event and assist in meeting the needs of the  event.
