MultiCare Nurse Camp - July 11-15th, 2016

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 2016 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.

Nurse Camp offers hands-on lesson in health care

The MultiCare Nurse Camp offers five full days of education, observation and participation in the daily activities of professional nurses and allied health professionals.

The 2016 MultiCare Nurse Camp is a FREE day camp based out of MultiCare Tacoma General and MultiCare Mary Bridge Children's Hospitals, and is held from approximately 8:00am - 4:00pm, daily.

At the end of the 2016 MultiCare Nurse Camp, you’ll walk away with nursing skills, knowledge of health careers, nursing scrubs, stethoscopes, new friends, a more focused future, and wonderful memories.
