07/05/11 Â Ancilla College and Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center recently co-hosted the annual â€śSummer Nursing Campâ€ť, a program for high school students interested in nursing as a career choice.
The program, which ran from June 21 to June 24, was held on the campuses of both Ancilla College and Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center in Plymouth.
Sponsored by Indiana Workforce Development and Nursing 2000 North, Summer Nursing Camp allows students to learn skills applicable in the nursing environment and also learn more about the profession as a whole.
â€śWe were excited to have once again hosted the Summer Nursing Camp for high school students interested in nursing as a career,â€ť said Ann Fitzgerald, Director of Nursing at Ancilla College.
Current Ancilla College LPN to RN Bridge students were on hand to teach campers in attendance how to check for vital signs and blood pressure during the first two days of camp.
During the final two days of the camp, students had the opportunity to put their nursing skills into practice at the Plymouth campus of Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center under the watchful eye of nurse educator Bridget Dudash.
Ancilla College and Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center â€“ Plymouth encourage interested students to contact their high school counselors for more information on how to participate in future Summer Nursing Camps.
Ancilla College is a Catholic, two-year, co-educational, liberal arts college in Donaldson, Indiana sponsored by the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ.
