Practical Nursing Students Raise Funds for Wounded Warrior Charity

Students in Pennsylvania College of Technology’s practical nursing major recently raised $300 for the Wounded Warrior Project.

Students in the course Nursing Care for Adults 1 elected to host a dress-down day on April 6. On that day, each student donated $5 in exchange for donning “street” clothes in place of the clinical uniforms (“scrubs”) that are required each day they are in class or a clinical experience.

One hundred percent of the students participated, and faculty from the course also donated. The fundraiser was coordinated through the college’s Student Nurses’ Association.

Wounded Warrior Project’s vision is to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history.
