Prospective employers will staff booths to let graduating students from Hartnell’s RN and VN programs know about the professional opportunities they offer. Nursing students will have an opportunity to meet with potential employers and attend professionally-oriented 10-minute presentations on career opportunities, interview skills, resume writing, and the profession of nursing.
