(ABC 6 News) - On Tuesday, Rochester Community and Technical College hosted the 13th annual Mayo Clinic Healthcare Career Fair.

Around 900 high school juniors and seniors from 45 different school districts across southern Minnesota traveled to the event.


Organizers said the purpose is to inspire an interest in the healthcare profession.  

"Something that we look for in students of all ages is a passion for helping others.  A nurse isn't a great nurse unless they care for their patients," said John Ninas, the Mayo Clinic Healthcare Career Festival Event Coordinator.

Throughout the day over 300 Mayo Clinic employees helped highlight dozens of different career options available to students.
