A recent Work Ethics class utilizes the classic strategy game of chess as a hands-on teaching tool for analytical and critical thinking.
Chess has been used to teach work ethics for centuries.
This lesson focused on "Prioritizing Goals" as a way to succeed at both the game and in the work environment. Chess has been used by the class as a way of highlighting critical thinking, strategy, respect for others, self-control, decisions/consequences, problem-solving skills, and planning.
Governor Brownback recently toured Larned State Hospital, and took time out of his schedule to talk with 20 Hutchinson Community College Practical Nursing students at the hospital for their clinical experience.
Brownback was quoted as saying the following to the HCC students: “It’s great to see you all here working toward a great career. Nurses are special people. They are always caring for the person’s needs that aren’t in the charts and that’s what makes a good nurse. Thank you all for what you are doing.”
Students planning to enroll at Hutchinson Community College in the Fall of 2013 can sign up for one of the four upcoming Enrollment Days.
Students will meet with advisors, learn more about majors and career choices and receive information about campus activities and housing opportunities.
