HELP: NEASC Parent Survey Responses- HHS at 20%- Need 25%
I am again asking for more parents to complete the Endicott Survey for our NEASC self-study. If you haven’t had a chance to complete the survey please take a moment to complete. NEASC will visit HHS in November of 2019. The responses from the parent, student and staff surveys will help guide us as we complete the self-study process. HHS has approximately 1850 students. The needle has moved a bit and we are at 20%. We are trying t0 get 25%. See attached link below.
Please go to the website www.endicottresearchcenter.net. On that page you will see “here to take a survey” Enter the following survey code: P2W20095and click GO. Follow the instructions. Every statement on the survey must be responded to in order for your answers to be recorded. Skipped statements will be presented again until they are responded to. When you reach the last screen, click SUBMIT.
Thank you for your help with this important work!

VIP Team Partners with Savers

On Wednesday April 11, 2018 our Healthcare Occupations and Scrubs Club students were fortunate to have the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, Nursing Bus visit our campus. This is a state-of-the-art Medical Laboratory and Simulation Lab on wheels. Nursing students from UML organized and hosted three stations to demonstrate and provide hands-on opportunities for various patient care skills to our high school students. One station included information on pressure ulcers, wound care protocols, and sterile dressings. Another included a birthing simulation with postpartum mother and baby assessment and care. The third station discussed central line placement and long-term medication therapies. High school students were provided an open forum for questioning anything from basic nursing skills to more personal questions about UML student life, professional goals and career readiness. Thank you, Jennifer Wilbur, RN and UML students for your generous volunteering of time and such positive contributions to our growing program!
