Prospective nursing students are invited to join Reinhardt University’s Cauble School of Nursing & Health Sciences for the second Camp Nightingale to be held July 15-16.
The two-day camp was created to assist rising high school juniors and seniors, along with incoming college freshmen, in making an informed decision when it comes to selecting nursing as a major.
“Camp Nightingale is a wonderful opportunity to learn about our nursing community, gain some nursing skills, interact with our high-fidelity simulators, but mostly spend time with our current faculty and students,” said Dr. Glynis Blackard, dean of the Cauble School of Nursing & Health Sciences. “It’s so much fun.”
Camp Nightingale will run 9 a.m.-4 p.m. both days and will consist of activities to teach campers about infection control, first aid, how to take vital signs and perform CPR. Those attending will get the chance to participate in a high-fidelity simulation.
The experience also includes games centered around learning about Reinhardt University and the nursing program. All who attend will receive recognition for their participation and a CPR completion certificate.
Day one of Camp Nightingale will take place at Reinhardt’s main campus, and day two at the Jasper campus. The cost to register is $150 and includes lunch for both days, a T-shirt and all activities.
