Nurse Camp is a one-week interactive day-camp. Attendees will learn alongside clinical nurses and nurse educators as they engage in a variety of hands-on (and highly visual) skills labs and activities, including CPR and Stop the Bleed training; donning and doffing PPE, mobility devices and lifts; removing sutures and staples; checking vital signs, medication, administration, and more. Lunch and snacks will be provided on site.
During the week-long program, students will receive a complete look at nursing through academic and clinical settings while observing how much of a role nurses play in our community. They will gain valuable insight into nursing school and what it takes to become a registered nurse. Each session will end with a recognition ceremony honoring the students for completing the camp.
There will be two sessions for Nurse Camp. Each session will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Session 1 - Monday, July 12 to Friday, July 16
- Session 2 - Monday, July 19 to Friday, July 23
Each session will be split between the UNLV Main Campus and Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas. Specific schedules will be provided to registered participants.
