MultiCare Nurse Camp

Are you a current high school sophomore or junior wondering what it would be like to be a nurse or allied health professional?

MultiCare’s Annual Nurse Camp is your opportunity to explore these exciting careers — and thanks to gracious donations from a variety of community organizations and businesses, including MultiCare Health System, the MultiCare Nurse Camp is free.

At the 2015 MultiCare Nurse Camp, you'll join professional nurses and other allied health care providers as they care for patients in the Emergency Department, Intensive Care Unit, Cancer Center, Labor & Delivery, Pediatric Care, and Adult Surgical Care areas. You will also participate in hands-on station rotations, mock codes, and even visit a local nursing school. In short, you’ll get a firsthand, behind the scenes look at the multifaceted world of nursing and allied health.
