Stay in Touch! Health Science and Nursing LinkedIn Showcase Page

We wanted to extend an invitation for you to join our campus  Health Science and Nursing LinkedIn showcase page. We developed this page with the support of our college marketing team to serve as an outreach and retention tool. The page will provide a space for our campus community to stay connected and informed. We hope to share relevant career advice, job opportunities for alumni and posting information about current and upcoming healthcare industry topics. We also invite faculty and staff to send any relevant topics, ideas or articles they would like share with our campus community.  In addition, an affiliated group page serves as a virtual space for MEC alumni and students to network.

We are excited to launch this initiative and look forward to your ongoing support as we serve our students and community.
