ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Technical College will celebrate nurses this week with several events on campus. 

Nurse Appreciation Week takes time to highlight the features of the colleges nursing program. 

The program takes pride in having the hands-on training provided in their simulations labs.

Melissa Williams, the simulation lab coordinator, said this is an opportunity to revisit the critical thinking skills of future nurses. 

"To recognize them, all the hard work and compassion that they do every day with our patients," said Williams. "We are there with them for 12 hours sometimes, and we see their changes. Either they go bad or they go good."

Some of the events this week include a community open house and several information sessions. 

This Thursday, during the future of nursing event, the $25 application fee will be waived for those looking to enroll.
