Hudson Regional Hospital has teamed up with Secaucus High School to inspire potential young medical professionals in town.

On Friday, Jan. 13, more than 60 Secaucus High School students who are interested in careers in the healthcare industry heard from Hudson Regional Hospital team members. The hospital showcased a variety of staff from its nursing, emergency, radiology and Emergency Medical Services departments.

The employees shared their professional experiences and educational backgrounds with the students. In addition, they answered questions anyone may have had.

Students were then invited to apply for one of 25 spots to participate in an on-site healthcare career day at Hudson Regional Hospital. The career day will take place on Friday, Feb. 17.

At the event, students will hear from the hospital’s President and CEO, Dr. Nizar Kifaieh. Then, they will shadow hospital staff members as they perform their afternoon duties.
