Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SOUTHERN CA, Calif. - May 08, 2018 - Watts, CA—The “Walking the Red Carpet to a Successful Nursing Career,” seminar will take place from 12–4 p.m. on May 19, 2018, at the “Watts Civic Center.” The host of the event, RN and CEO of The Nurses Pub Foundation, Mona Clayton, will edge closer to her goal of captivating and recruiting 100,000 future nurses from around the country.
The event will take place where Ms. Clayton called home during most of her formative years in Watts, Calif, a place known to be riddled with gang members, drive by shootings and poverty. However, Ms. Clayton often feels that her surroundings are what made her become more driven and want to provide a decent lifestyle for her and her daughter.
“Many people think that if you are from the ‘hood’ that there is no hope and many are stereotyped; however, I believe that with focus, faith and initiative anyone can have a wonderful career,” Clayton said.
Clayton was a bedside nurse for over 20 years, but she felt limited in her role creatively and wanted to represent the profession on a global level. Perhaps it was her zeal for journalism, her curiosity for business or her attraction to the computer keyboard that helped her pen her first published book, “From Student to Nurse—Surviving the Journey” that put the bedside nurse into action. But according to Mona, it was her need to give back to future nurses—in particular single mothers, men and individuals who felt that they could not survive the nursing journey.
In conjunction with the Los Angeles Housing Authority, Work Source/Watts-LA and Councilman Joe Buscaino’s office of the 15th district, Clayton hopes to make a major impact on the community, especially high schools students, single mothers and others in need of an idea for economic empowerment and a solid profession.
“I believe that a career in nursing is not for everyone, but maybe someone attending may want to become a doctor, anesthesiologist or any other health care profession. I hope to, along with a distinguished panel of registered nurses, ignite the interest and kickstart a mindset of faith, belief, empowerment and hope.”
The seminar will include a panel of seasoned nursing professionals from various aspects of nursing such as labor & delivery, emergency, oncology and case management to name a few.
Our guest speaker, Taquita Love, a pediatric oncology nurse is also a comedian. The event is FREE for students, residents of the housing authority and Worksource interns. Lunch will be served for registered guest.
