North Central Michigan College will host a Discovery Day career-exploration event on Friday, February 21, 2020, in the Health Education and Science Center on the Petoskey campus.  The event will focus on careers in nursing and public safety, with the goal of helping students discover whether a career in those fields suits their interests, plus the education and preparation necessary to secure employment.

The hands-on, free event will feature break-out sessions led by North Central faculty, and a question-and-answer session with North Central students will provide helpful information about the education required.  Lunch will be provided.  Discovery Days are open to high school juniors and older.  Pre-registration is required, and attendance is limited to 30 people per track (nursing or criminal justice/emergency medical technician/firefighting).

“Discovery Day allows students to ‘try on’ a career in nursing or public safety to determine whether it’s the right path for them,” said Ashley Antonishen, outreach recruiter.  “It’s a great way to explore your interests without the pressure of a financial or time commitment.”

North Central Michigan College is an open-door community college based in Petoskey, with additional locations offering classes and services in Cheboygan and Gaylord.  North Central’s mission is to provide educational, economic and cultural opportunities for student learning, personal growth and community improvement.  North Central is an Achieving the Dream Leader College with a designation of Veteran Friendly Gold by the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency.
