KMBC: New Kansas City Area Program Looks to Stem an Interest in Health Care for High Schoolers
A new pilot program at Saint Luke's is working to attract high schoolers to a career in health care.
KMBC talked to Alexis Walker, a nursing assistant who completed the program, and Kristin Carlson, director of system education at Saint Luke's, about how these students are making an impact.
*Note: Nursing assistants communicate with and provide assistance to each patient's multidisciplinary care team, including rehabilitation. Nursing assistants do not provide physical therapy.
