Saint Luke's College Opening Doors for High School Students to Pursue a Future in Healthcare

​A new pilot program at Saint Luke’s College of Nursing and Health Sciences is opening career doors as early as high school for some future Kansas City healthcare heroes.

Through a partnership with Rockhurst University and KC Prep to benefit Allen Village High School students, an opportunity now exists for 5-7 students to be chosen during their junior year to participate in the program.

Rockhurst Students, Operation Breakthrough Mutually Benefit from Partnership

In 2019, Rockhurst began a service-learning partnership with Operation Breakthrough, the largest early learning center in the Kansas City region.

Under the agreement, Rockhurst occupational therapy and speech-language pathology students work with some of the hundreds of kids at Operation Breakthrough, learning how to properly evaluate children and provide intervention.
