Next generation of nurses take their first steps with UK HealthCare

Graduating nurses from across the commonwealth and beyond took a major step towards becoming an RN within UK HealthCare.  In what health care leaders called a “transformative milestone,” nearly 200 graduating students were given the opportunity to interview with hiring leaders from Chandler, KY Children’s, Good Samaritan, the Markey Cancer Center and Eastern State Hospital.  Interviews were scheduled based on student’s career interests as well as offering them an opportunity exploring areas they may not have yet considered.
