“W” nursing students get a look at their future

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI)- Dozens of MUW nursing students gathered on campus to learn about future opportunities.

Reps from more than 20 different nursing facilities came out for the university’s nursing job fair.

Employers traveled from all over the state, parts of Alabama, and Tennessee.

Event coordinators said the fair allows students to learn more about the field and also opens doors for potential jobs once nurses graduate.

“To get our students connected with those employers, with those nursing facilities that are offering job positions to put them all in one place, so that they are able to find out what is out there, what the options are with the degrees that they’ve chosen,” said MUW career specialist Towanda Williams.

“Connections are so important and I think you’ve got to get your name out there and you’ve got to see all of the different opportunities that are available. You can’t just hope something falls in your lap, so just having one space to be able to talk to so many different people is incredible,” said Maggie Rodriguez.

Rodriguez is currently a nursing student at MUW.
