Welcome to the first episode of the North Dakota Center for Nursing’s podcast! We will periodically feature inspiring news, stories and much more spanning the nursing profession across North Dakota.

In our first episode, we traveled to Jamestown, ND to attend the regional HOSA Competition. HOSA allows students perusing a health career the ability to compete in a variety of events. The HOSA event is coordinated by the Area Health Education Center.

This episode features an interview with Western Area Health Education Center (AHEC) Director Denise Andress, RN. We also had a chance to visit with several students including Tamara Ramirez and Macee Sortland of Minot, ND and Kaylee Arndt of West Fargo, ND to hear about their experience at HOSA and their future nursing career ambitions.
