The Department of Nursing at Dickinson State University and the DSU Nursing Students Association's hosts an annual Nurse Camp for area 5th and 6th graders.
Our goals in offering Nurse Camp are to energize and encourage participants’ interest in future nursing careers. We also hope to spark enthusiasm for science and math courses which will help prepare students for nursing education. During Nurse Camp, students will be exposed to hands-on activities and encouraged to use thinking skills that are required to become a nurse. Areas of nursing practice covered include geriatrics, obstetrics, medical/surgical, emergency room care, critical care, operating room nurse, sports injuries care and nurse educator.
There are no costs involved and each participant will receive a free stethoscope and a Nurse Camp t-shirt! Enrollment is limited to 80 participants.
