On Tuesday, September 26, Workforce Solutions Capital Area, Workforce Solutions Rural Capital Area, and the Central Texas Healthcare Partnership (represented by Baylor Scott & White Health, Ascension Seton and St. David’s HealthCare) will host a nursing academy for junior and high school students in the Central Texas area.

This event will allow students from Austin, Del Valle, Dripping Springs, Elgin, Georgetown, Hays, Leander, Lockhart, Pflugerville and Round Rock ISDs, as well as local charter schools and American YouthWorks, to explore nursing career paths, along with hands-on opportunities in Austin Community College’s simulation labs to experience wound care, injections, and IV lines.

The nursing shortage is the largest gap in employment for healthcare, and the event is designed to help inspire the next generation of skilled healthcare workers, as well as spotlight the value nurses provide to our community.
