Waipahu High School Academy of Health & Sciences Students Visit UH Manoa Nursing
Approximately 25 Waipahu High School Academy of Health and Sciences students and teachers visited UH Manoa Nursing on February 9, 2019. The Waipahu High School Academy of Health & Sciences is aimed at preparing students for post-secondary studies in a career in health services and science. The students, accompanied by their academy of health and sciences teachers and advisors, were given the opportunity to tour the UH Translational Health Science Simulation Center (THSSC) and experience hands-on simulation activities. In addition to the tour and activities, the academy of health and sciences students interacted with UH Manoa Nursing’s Student Ambassadors who provided insight into life as nursing students and learned more about the High School Direct Entry to Nursing program.
