Nursing and Healthcare Camp: June 10-15, 2018
Rising 9th – 12th Grade
Are you thinking about a career in healthcare? Doctor? Nurse? Physical Therapist? Healthcare professional? If you are a rising 9th-12th grade student and would like to learn more about these and other healthcare opportunities, we invite you to attend our Nursing and Healthcare Camp at Auburn University hosted by the Auburn University School of Nursing!
Nursing and Healthcare Camp is designed to provide engaging opportunities which introduce core concepts of healthcare and nursing through classroom and simulation lab settings. Learning continues outside the classroom and lab, through small group discussions, projects and field trips.
Camp participants will experience campus-life while residing in Auburn's resident dormitories, eating at campus dining facilities, and enjoying evening social and recreational activities. Campers will have 24/7 counselor supervision.

This 89,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility is the first building on campus to provide a home for all of nursing’s classes, simulation labs, activity learning centers and offices.
Additional facilities for clinical nursing experiences include East Alabama Medical Center and other hospitals in the area, Mental Health Centers, clinics, nursing homes, physicians’ offices, Public Health Departments, public schools and industrial sites.
