Northwestern to host nursing mini-camps

Northwestern College’s nursing and admissions departments will host two upcoming nursing mini-camps for high school juniors and seniors interested in careers in nursing. The one-day camps will be held on Tuesday, Sept 27, and Friday, Nov. 18.

Each 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 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 they want to attend; space is limited. The registration fee is $20.
