Nurse T’s Future Nurses Program gives children a hands-on experience in nursing and healthcare professions through interactive workshops. The program will introduce these crucial fields to kids directly from the source and celebrate that nursing isn’t just a job. It’s a calling.
The free program will also appeal to youth, nursing students, nursing instructors, health care professionals, hospital administrators, pharmacists, teachers, and the community. Register for the Future Nurses Program at thenurseswhocare.com by April 27th.
Nurse T Doll Inspires the Next Generation of Nurses
Alexander, the founder and CEO of Nurses Who Care, is on a mission to entertain children during playtime while encouraging their personal development skills through books, dolls, and games. So she used her experience and wisdom from her nursing career to also launch the Nurse T Doll, designed to instill a love for the medical field in young girls and boys, fostering ambitions to become the patient care professionals of the future.
In the spirit of playing with a purpose, the doll will help teach kids about a day in the life of a nurse because “we are counting on the next generation to connect with their inner enthusiasm and study nursing,” says Alexander. The Nurse T Doll is also the first-ever nursing doll in the image of a real nurse.
