Are you interested in nursing? Are you entering junior or senior year of high school? If you said yes, we want you! Applications for the 2017 Summer Nurse Camp are now available.
Seattle Children’s is a richly diverse organization. The patients and families we serve come from many backgrounds and bring distinct values, family structures, strengths and special needs. We strive to maintain an atmosphere that reflects our values of inclusion by providing effective and respectful care compatible with each patient and family’s beliefs, values and heritage.
To reach our goals, we are committed to recruiting the best nurses, cultivating an inclusive and diverse workforce and inspiring diverse high school students to pursue a career in nursing. Every year we offer local high school students from diverse backgrounds the opportunity to participate in our Nurse Camp at Seattle Children’s. During this three-day camp, students will gain insights into the world of pediatric nursing by participating in clinical observation sessions. In these sessions, students will shadow nurses in a clinical environment and observe as they provide patient care and interact with patients and families (students will not provide patient care). Students will also work through interactive hands-on skills labs to learn and practice various nursing skills on models. In addition student will have the opportunity to engage with an educational panel to ask questions and discuss nursing as a viable career path.
