Northwestern to host Nursing Mini-Camp
Wednesday, October 7, 2015
Northwestern College will host a free Nursing Mini-Camp for high school juniors and seniors considering careers in nursing. The day camp will be held Friday, Nov. 13, from 8:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Jointly presented by the college’s nursing and admissions departments, the camp will serve the needs of both students and parents. Activities will include a simulated clinical experience, learning some nursing skills, a campus tour, and a luncheon with current nursing students and faculty.
“For those interested in nursing as a future profession, the Nursing Mini-Camp provides an opportunity to experience aspects of Northwestern College’s nursing program firsthand,” says Dr. Julie Dragstra, interim chair of the nursing department. “It is a fun and informative way to network with nursing students and faculty to learn more about obtaining a B.S.N. degree.”
Information will be presented about career opportunities, financial aid and admission at Northwestern. A question-and-answer session will be offered for both students and parents.
Interested high school juniors and seniors must pre-register by Friday, Oct. 30. Space is limited.
The registration form can be filled out and submitted online at www.nwciowa.edu/nursing/mini-camps. The form can also be requested from Pam Reints, administrative services manager, at 712-707-7220 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Northwestern’s nursing department offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree (B.S.N.) with both a four-year and an RN-BSN option. The college’s Nursing Arts Laboratory includes advanced human patient simulators. Distinctive features of Northwestern’s nursing program include being based on a biblical model of health and healing, more than 840 hours of clinical experience, and multiple opportunities for healthcare-related mission projects.
Northwestern’s nursing program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education and approved by the Iowa Board of Nursing.
