The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute — OLLI at Casper College — has joined forces with the Casper College Nursing Department to present “Nursing Showcase: Support Future Nurses.” The showcase will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 29, on the second floor of the Walter H. Nolte Gateway Center from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.

The “Nursing Showcase: Support Future Nurses” is designed for those interested in health topics. “Graduating students will present their health-related research in an easy-to-understand format. Participants will be able to meet their future nurses, learn from them, and support these aspiring professionals,” said Kat Bohr-Buresh, OLLI coordinator.

Topics to be discussed include COVID’s effects on RNs leaving the profession, nurse burnout, depression, heart health, vaping, sexuality/sexually transmitted infections, social media and its effects on mental health, and the prevention of pneumonia in ventilated patients.

“OLLI is collaborating with Heidi Loucks and Lisa Coulter of the nursing department to bring about this event,” noted Bohr-Buresh. The event will begin with a brief welcome by Loucks and Coulter, followed by the presentations, which will take place in four classrooms. “We are going to split the audience into four groups. A total of 27 nursing students will be presenting in eight groups. The presentations will begin at 11:45 a.m. and end at 12:30 p.m.,” said Bohr-Buresh.

The Nolte Gateway Center is located on the Casper College campus. The showcase presentation is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Kat Bohr-Buresh at 307-268-2097 or kat.bohr-buresh@caspercollege.edu.
