MU nursing students volunteer at annual Career Exploration Camp
06-27-13

The nursing camp is held every June on campus.

Misericordia University nursing students recently acted as camp ambassadors for the annual Misericordia University Nursing Career Exploration Camp that enabled rising high school juniors and seniors to gain experience in the field of nursing through a mixture of clinical, laboratory, classroom and field experiences.

The Career Exploration Camps at Misericordia University are a popular destination for students who want to explore both college campus life and a potential career. Misericordia University offers nine popular academic camps every June in biology, business, chemistry-biochemistry, communications and media, English literature, nursing, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology and teacher education.
 
High school students interested in a career in nursing get an opportunity to gain extensive hands-on experience at the three-day, two-night residential camp. Students learned about the profession and its many specialty fields, experience the latest interactive technology in the simulation laboratory in John J. Passan Hall, meet with nursing faculty and students, and tour clinical sites in the region.
