Title:
Bellin College of Nursing Summer Camp
Abstract:
Bellin College of Nursing Summer Camp
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Swanson, JoAnn
Health Care is in a state of crisis. One of the factors contributing to this situation is the dwindling numbers of nurses available to meet the demands of those in need of quality health care. High School students are not choosing nursing because of inadequate and unrealistic information about the profession. In an effort to educate these students about the profession, Bellin College of Nursing has developed a three-day residential camp, scheduled to be held the summer of 2001. In this camp students will have a variety of experiences exposing them to different facets of the profession including practicing skills, shadowing nurses in various settings, and participating in a college science laboratory. In addition there will be classroom discussions around health practices, ethics and values; as well as an opportunity to be certified in cardio-pulmonary resuscitation. Three community hospitals were approached for funding to cover the majority of the camp expenses as well as providing access to clinical units and staff. Due to this support, students from any socio-economic background can be encouraged to apply since all accepted students are able to attend the camp free of charge. Since we had an overwhelming response to the camp, we increased our projected enrollment from fourteen students to the thirty one students who will graduate from high school in spring of 2002. Students filled out an application that addressed class year, academic information, references and were asked to write a short essay about why they would like to attend the camp. It is our hope that this program will enable students to make an informed decision about choosing nursing as a career.
