NWC to host nursing mini-camp

Thursday, December 10, 2009

Northwestern College’s nursing and admissions departments will host a nursing mini-camp for high school juniors and seniors interested in careers in nursing on Friday, Jan. 22.

The camp, which runs from 8:45 a.m. to 2 p.m., offers students interested in nursing an opportunity to shadow practicing nurses and learn about career opportunities for health care professionals with B.S.N. (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) degrees.

Students will also meet with Northwestern nursing faculty and students and tour the college’s nursing arts laboratory, which includes three human patient simulators. In addition, participants’ parents are invited to a luncheon where they will learn about scholarships and financial assistance for nursing students.

Interested high school juniors and seniors must pre-register at least two weeks prior to the camp; space is limited. The registration fee is $10.

The registration form is available for download at www.nwciowa.edu/nursingcamp. Or contact Pam Reints, nursing department assistant, at 712-707-7220 or preints@nwciowa.edu.
