Up to 20 middle and high school students, grades eight through 12, will get a chance to learn about careers in nursing this summer, thanks to the free "Careers Into Nursing" camps at Clayton State University.
Part of the Clayton State School of Nursing’s Workforce Diversity Grant, the "Careers Into Nursing" camps will run from Monday, June 17 to Friday, June 21, and from Monday, July 15 to Friday, July 19, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
These week-long programs target minority or disadvantaged middle and high school students who have expressed an interest in nursing as a career… providing an entrée for their dreams to be made real. Participants will receive information about health promotion and careers in nursing as well as CPR certification and the chance to visit various health facilities. Each session will culminate with a graduation ceremony and lunch for the participants.
Parents must provide transportation to and from camp activities in the Harry S. Downs Center on the Clayton State main campus, and to Grady Hospital on Thursday of the camp week.
