Provide Nursing Camperships for Teens from Rural Areas
We've met our goal for this year, but please continue to give! Additional funds will be used to provide Nursing Camp 2020 camperships for high school students.
High School Nursing Camp, facilitated by Auburn University School of Nursing (AUSON) and Auburn Youth Programs (AYP), is an engaging one-week summer program available for high school students interested in careers in nursing.
Our Tiger Giving Day goal of $8,000 will provide 10 camperships for High School Nursing Camp 2019. Camperships will provide financial assistance and an open doorway for motivated high school students from rural areas to explore careers and educational pathways as they participate in this high-energy, on-campus experience.
Camp participants “learn by doing” and practice technical skills as they rotate through interactive learning stations led by undergraduate nursing students in the school’s labs. Faculty use case studies and simulation scenarios to bring healthcare specializations like emergency medicine, surgery, pediatrics, and home health to life as campers provide care for simulated patients throughout the week. The week includes team competitions, learning opportunities with community healthcare professionals, and discussion of educational pathways to nursing.
AUSON’s first Nursing Camp was held in 2016. Over the past three years, we have been honored to welcome teens from Alabama as well as other states across the country, including Georgia, Florida, Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina. We enjoy sharing our love for nursing through service and outreach with high school students and welcome you to join us as a partner in the career journey of a young person.
Thank you for considering a donation to provide a 2019 nursing campership. We look forward to meeting our summer campers and sharing the AU spirit with them! War Eagle!
