GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - Over twenty students from Eastside High School met with registered nurses from UF Health Shands as part of a mentorship program.

The nurses, along with students and professors from the University of Florida College of Nursing gave career advice to students in Eastside’s medical skills program.

The nurses talked about their personal experience in the field and held a questions-and-answers session.

“Being a part of this allowed me to provide some of the mentoring resources that I didn’t have so that I can pass it on and pay it forward to help those that are in need.”
