OHS Scrub Club was created for students who want to have a future in nursing and the medical field. The club is a partnership between Alina Health and Mayo Clinic where they allow students to come into the Owatonna Hospital to explore different healthcare careers. 

OHS students can register for the club which is limited to 20-25 students per session. The first session occurred on Dec. 6. Students practiced techniques such as sutures and CPR. This session gave students the opportunity to hands-on work and get the experience of what being in the medical field is truly like. 

OHS students used to have the option to go up to Rochester for a program called Discover Mayo, but this opportunity was very limiting for students due to the location being in Rochester.   Scrub Club goal of bringing the experience was to get more students involved. Career explorations director Mr. Brian Coleman said, “The goal is to really expose as many students as possible to different healthcare careers, really give them the opportunity to do hands-on work.” Since the students are able to go out and do these activities, Scrub Club provides a different perspective other than just learning about it in class. 

Many students at OHS who take nursing classes are also involved in Scrub Club. Senior Donte Miller said, “I joined Scrub Club because I want to be a traveling nurse, and my favorite part is doing the actual skills we learn.” This helps students learn what a career in healthcare could look like down the road. 

Some things are still being worked out such as how often these sessions will be held and the changes that will be made from session to session. The next Scrub Club session will be on Feb. 12.
