2nd Annual Nurses Carnival

Nearly four million nurses around the country provide extraordinary care to patients every day. In honor of these men and women, the WVU School of Nursing and WVU Medicine will celebrate National Nurses Week by hosting the Nurses’ Carnival at the Erickson Alumni Center on Wednesday, May 11, 2106, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The carnival, which is free and open to the public, will include prizes, games, food and special appearances by the Mountaineer; Cooper, the Black Bears mascot; and WVU Medicine’s Monti Bear. Attendees can also enjoy free chair massages, grab a picture with a colleague at the photo booth and purchase items from nearly 20 local vendors. Last year more than 250 people participated in carnival activities.
