Allied Health Career Day – October 6

The Ninth Annual Health Career Day will be held October 6 at the North Dakota State College of Science, located at 800 Sixth Street North in Wahpeton, N.D. Career Day will begin at 9 a.m. in the Harry and Ella Stern Cultural Center and will continue to the Mayme Green Allied Health Center. The Career Day is considered a “dual” event, as both employers of the NDSCS Allied Health students and prospective students are invited to attend.

Prospective students will have numerous opportunities to explore the 12 Allied Health career paths offered at NDSCS including visiting with prospective employers about employment in health fields, touring classrooms and labs and participating in hands-on demonstrations in each of the career areas.  Allied Health faculty, staff and current students will also be available to discuss academic programs, campus life and student organizations.

Employers will have the opportunity to visit with and recruit students from the 12 Allied Health careers for future employment at their facilities. They may also tour classrooms and labs at the Health Center, meet the faculty, administration and staff and attend a luncheon.
