ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY FIELD TRIP
The anatomy & physiology students took a field trip to the Human Anatomy & Physiology Interactive (HAPI) Lab at Wright State's Boonshoft School of Medicine. The students were able to view healthy and diseased organs, as well as cadavers. The lab visit was an excellent review of content already covered in their class and preview of organ systems yet to be covered. Possible career pathways were also discussed with students and staff at the HAPI Lab.

The Mock Crash was held at TVS on the morning of April 28. A Mock Crash is designed to remind students of the dangers of drunk and distracted driving. The presentation is given to the high school students before prom season when there is typically an increase in these types of accidents.

WORK + INITIATIVE
Miami University Regionals is excited to announce that beginning this fall we are partnering with Kettering Health Hamilton, Premier Health Atrium Medical Center, and Butler County General Health District to expand our Work+ initiative.
These new healthcare partnerships will make it possible for students in southwestern Ohio to graduate debt-free from Miami Regionals in nursing. In addition to nursing, Miami Regionals also offers bachelor’s degrees in health information technology and healthcare communication.
Work+ can provide your students with jobs plus paid tuition while earning their bachelor’s degree. This pathway is an excellent opportunity to “earn while they learn,'' and makes it easy to transfer seamlessly into their career after graduating from Miami.
Work+ is a win-win-win relationship for multiple stakeholders.
Students win with Work+ because they receive a paycheck, are able graduate debt-free, and gain valuable experience while earning their degrees. By staying in the program while pursuing their nursing degree, they have the potential to graduate with four years of work experience which gives them a competitive advantage in securing a position upon graduation.
Employers win with Work+ because they can retain highly-motivated and hard-working employees in positions that experience high turnover, thus saving on attrition and hiring costs. Work+ helps employers grow and invest in their own workforce and retain employees. The opportunity is low risk for employers because the tuition payment is based on student performance guidelines and not due until the end of a semester.
Communities win with Work+. The program creates pathways from K-12 to college to a career locally. This helps us all build and strengthen the local healthcare workforce pool, provide access to higher education, and aid in developing and maintaining economic growth.
Students interested in Nursing can complete a bachelor’s degree entirely at Miami’s Regional campuses. We are accepting applications for the fall semester through August 1.
As an open access institution, admission to Miami Regionals only requires an application and proof of high school completion. Students interested in applying to Nursing must have a cumulative high school GPA of 3.0 to be considered.
Students can apply online at MiamiOH.edu/Regionals/Admission.
