July 15, 2015

FOND DU LAC, Wis. –

Twenty high school students from around the state participated in the 13
th

annual summer nursing camp, hosted by Marian University in partnership with Agnesian HealthCare.

The camp, which took place in June over four days, was an intensive immersion experience, providing hands-on opportunities through a nursing skills lab, instructional sessions about various nursing topics and job shadowing of a registered nurse at St. Agnes Hospital. Participants also received First Aid and CPR instruction. Additionally, they were exposed to how paramedics and emergency personnel operate in lifesaving situations, which included the students observing the arrival of Flight for Life.

“The nurse camp was very successful,” said Nancy Noble, assistant professor of Nursing at Marian University and Nursing Camp Coordinator, “The students showed enthusiasm for the camp and for nursing as a career choice. Students reported that the camp gave them an opportunity to really observe what nurses do in a variety of settings and evaluated the camp as an excellent experience.”

In addition to Marian University and Agnesian Healthcare, the camp was supported by a donation in memory of Dr. Ruth Willmington which allowed the participants to attend the camp at no cost.
