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.
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 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.
Current sophomores and juniors in high school in Pierce, South King, Kitsap, and North Thurston County (MultiCare's service area) who are interested in nursing or other health-related career and motivated to learn more, are eligible to apply.
Approximately 100 students who are current sophomores and juniors at the time of application, and have not participated before in MultiCare Nurse Camp, will be accepted.
Students will be admitted based on a total score awarded for all elements of their application, including a personal statement and recommendations, as outlined on the application checklist.
