Halloween Haunted Hospital Teaches Kids Importance of Prevention

On Saturday, October 31st, the Portland Community College Chapter of the National Student Nurses Association will be transforming the Nursing skills lab into a frightful Haunted Hospital on Halloween! The cost is $4 per child.

The purpose of the Haunted Hospital is a community outreach project aimed at teaching kids about the importance of practicing safety and developing healthy habits to prevent accidents and disease and to promote health.

Come out and begin your Halloween celebration by visiting this fun and spooky hospital.

Trick or Treat bags, donated by the Northwest Health Foundation, will be given to the first 400 visitors! Bring a can or box of non-perishable food for a $1.00 discount on admission. The food will be donated to the Oregon Food Bank to help combat hunger this winter for needy Oregonians

The event serves to help raise money for the PCC SNA chapter by providing the necessary funds and resources to continue community outreach efforts of that students participate and organize all year long.

It has been found that Americans rank prevention as their most important health priority and overwhelming support increasing funding for prevention programs to reduce disease and keep people healthy. The PCC NSNA Chapter believes that nurses should be at the forefront of that movement and when student nurses are out promoting health in the community they become a part of that exciting change!
