Discover Nursing Summer Camps At Bethel College

Bethel College is the host site for one of eight “Discover Nursing Summer Camps” for high school students sponsored by the Northwest Indiana Area Health Education Center and Nursing 2000 North.

Student participants will have a two-day college campus experience introducing them to campus life and teaching them hands-on skills in the nursing center. The last two days of camp will take place in a hospital setting. This will allow students to be introduced to the diverse scope of health care professionals. They will also have the opportunity to interact with nurses practicing in a non-clinical setting. The camps are intended to encourage students to pursue nursing, other related healthcare careers and help reduce the shortage of healthcare providers in Indiana. The students will receive supplies to assist in their on-campus and hospital learning experience.
