Involvement Opportunities

Want to be more involved?  Here are a few ways to jump start your career in nursing!

Widener Partnership Charter School Volunteer
Helping the nurse at the Widener Partnership Charter School. In the past nursing students have volunteered to assist the nurse in the charter school health office. They usually do paperwork. The nurse is there Monday through Friday 8-4 pm.  Students can come for as little as an hour. Juniors and seniors preferred because they have their clearances and ppd (TB test) which is required to be in the school setting.
