Are You Interested in a Nursing Career? Spend four days this summer experiencing the work nurses do. You'll be glad you did!

Every year, local high school students come together at NorthBay Healthcare facilities to experience the world of Nursing. This program is meant to help students learn about nursing and decide if it's the career they want to pursue.

Our camp provides a first-hand look at the nursing profession through the use of on-site demonstrations, hands-on skills labs, interactive presentations, observation of actual patient/nurse interactions, and many other learning activities. Nurses from various hospital and outpatient units collaborate with community groups to provide the "campers" with four days of immersion into the world of nursing.

Nurse Camp provides:

  • Hands-on experience for students exploring nursing as a career
  • Access to nursing staff as role models and to ask questions in a non-threatening environment
  • Exposure for students from health-care studies to the acute care environment of the hospital


Our camp is open to all local high school students. Applications for the 2019 Nurse Camp will be available by March 1, 2019. Questions? Call (707) 646-3322 or send an email to NurseAcademy@northbay.org
