Twenty middle school students will have an opportunity to participate in hands-on activities learning about the role nurses play in caring for patients. The program is sponsored by NDSU School of Nursing at Sanford Health and by Sanford Health - Bismarck.

The event will be held Monday, April 26, 2021 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at NDSU Nursing at Sanford Health in Bismarck, North Dakota.

CDC guidelines, safety measures and face coverings are being implemented at the event.

Nurse camp is an interactive, hands-on opportunity for students in grades 6, 7 and 8 to explore what it is like to be a nurse.

Participants will meet people who work as nurses, people who teach nursing and students who are taking classes to be nurses. Participants will also try out activities that real-world nurses do when they take care of patients through hands-on simulation.

Students will learn about infection control, taking vital signs, health/nutrition, tracheostomy care, injections, wound care, respiratory care, and much more.

“These events are a great way for middle school students to participate in hands-on experiences in health care. They learn about what nurses do and about the many types of health care careers that are available,” said Charys Kunkel, director of nursing at NDSU Nursing at Sanford Health.
