SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. - Western Nebraska Community College is hiring actors to help nursing students with real-life situations.

WNCC is seeking actors to play the roles of patients and family members in life-like simulations for the WNCC Nursing Program. 

Auditions will be held Saturday, August 6 starting at 10 a.m. in the Judy Chaloupka Theater on WNCC's Scottsbluff Campus. All actors must be 18 or older, and comfortable with measurement of vital signs and simple, non-invasive medical procedures. These are paid positions and a background check is required.

The simulations will aid WNCC nursing students in gaining real-life experience in a controlled environment. If chosen, actors will attend training sessions in September to prepare for the simulations.
