C-N’s Nursing Camp openings are dwindling
(April 6, 2017) – Limited slots remain for Carson-Newman University’s Nursing Department third annual Summer Camp, scheduled for July 17–21.
Designed for high school students (rising sophomores, juniors and seniors), the week-long campus experience gives those considering a nursing career several firsthand opportunities, including practicing lab skills, developing group interaction abilities and seeing a trauma helicopter up close.
“Our aim is to expose students interested in nursing to the wide variety of opportunities available within the field,” said Carson-Newman Assistant Professor of Nursing Mary Coleman, who is coordinating the camp. “They will live on campus, get to know our caring nursing faculty and interact with current students. Beyond getting to know Carson-Newman, we find that it helps many students more clearly define their sense of calling to the profession.”
Participants live in resident halls, eat in the cafeteria, have free time in the 93,000-square-foot Maddox Student Activities Center, and they are offered several on-campus evening activities. The all-inclusive registration fee ($300) covers lodging, meals and laboratory supplies. The application deadline is May 15, with payment required within two weeks of acceptance.
