“I had great experiences with my time at the school, including huge amounts of clinical time and hands-on experience… something that you just can't replace,” said Kade Myers, 2020 graduate and inpatient registered nurse in the Geisinger Lewistown Hospital intensive care unit. “I think this is a huge piece that contributed to who I am as a nurse today.”
The sale is open to everyone, and anyone interested in purchasing an illuminated ceramic star ornament can do so for $20 at go.geisinger.org/stars. One of three designs will be randomly chosen for each recipient. Ornaments can be picked up any day between April 24 and May 12 at:
