Teen Network is a compilation of the various youth activities conducted by the chapter. The Nursing Club at Renaissance Middle School was conceived by the late Doris McCartney and past chapter president Shirley Hunter as a recruitment and mentoring program for nursing and other healthcare professions. Teen Network aims to take advantage of this time of inquiry to expose students to the opportunities of the health care field. Health-related activities have included tours to health-related facilities for career presentations; visits to acute care, long term care, and rehabilitation facilities; visits to a medical robotics lab; annual Christmas visits to the Veterans Administration Day Hospital for Christmas Carols and interaction with the veterans where students donated small gifts. Classes on CPR instruction and Emergency Preparedness have been conducted.
