Nurse Camp Applications Now Online

The annual NorthBay Nurse Camp 2018 will be held June 19-22 and applications are now being accepted. The deadline to submit applications is Thursday, April 26.

New this year: The application process is all digital and available online at NorthBay.org/NurseCamp.

Thirty students will be selected to attend this year's camp. Designed to give local high school students a first-hand look at the nursing profession, the four-day camp is taught by working registered nurses from a variety of hospital departments, including the ER, ICU, Labor and Delivery, Surgery, NICU, Mother/Baby, Med-Surg and the Trauma Center.

As part of the online application, students are asked to write short essays on who their biggest role model is and why, a time when they made a difference, and what super power they wish they possessed and why.

"The online application process is going to make it a lot easier for students to apply and will streamline the selection process," said Donna Dabeck, nursing recruitment and retention manager with NorthBay. "It's going to be another great Nurse Camp!"

Once a student is accepted into the program, a $100 non-refundable tuition payment is required. For further information, email NurseAcademy@NorthBay.org.
