2 Timothy 13:16-17 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.American University of Health Sciences (AUHS) was invited to attend the BSN/MSN Education Fair at Cedars-Sinai on Monday, April 10, 2017, from 7 am to 2:30 pm. Chantal Jura, the AUHS Director of Career Services and Affiliations, and Aya Almukhtar, an AUHS Admissions Coordinator, held a booth at Cedars-Sinai on the university’s behalf. Jura and Almukhtar passed out informational packets and spoke to many people who were interested in receiving their Master’s or Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing degree.

“This was the first time we were invited to Cedars-Sinai’s Education Fair. It was a fun event. They provided breakfast and lunch and we got to mix and mingle with the Cedars-Sinai education department,” Jura said, “This was a great way for AUHS to reach out to prospective students and for Cedars-Sinai get to know us better.”

Over 30 people visited AUHS’ booth to take a flyer, ask questions about what programs the university had to offer, and filled out applications.

“A lot of the people that I spoke to were interested in our Master in Clinical Research (MSCR) program and our Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing (BSN) program,” Jura said, “There were even some people who approached us that were not necessarily nurses but were in a related field, like Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA), who wanted to become nurses because of their work experience.”

About a dozen universities attended Cedars-Sinai’s BSN/MSN Education Fair including West Coast College (WCC), California State University Long Beach (CSULB), University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), and Arizona State University (ASU). What set AUHS apart from the rest of the other universities was its Christian values and extensive community outreach events such as Acts of Love, Santa Cause, and Pray it Forward.

“A lot of people were interested in the fact that AUHS was a Christian university,” Jura said, “We appealed to other Christians who shared the same values. They liked how we give our students opportunities to help the homeless and make a real difference in the community.”

AUHS plans to attend a similar event at Harbor UCLA on May 2nd, 2017.
