Exploring Health Careers Camp
Join us for two, fun filled days, exploring Health Careers! This camp is designed to be interactive and provide lifelike experiences to increase awareness, interest, and understanding of health careers in our area.
This camp is a hands on learning experience to help students explore careers in health care and is being offered locally in Hampton and Forest City. The 1st day you will explore health careers through hands on activities throughout the day. The 2nd day, campers will be transported to the NIACC campus to spend the day in the NIACC Health Simulation Center. Campers will learn essential skills related to working as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) and Registered Nurse (RN), while exploring other opportunities in health care, as well.
We will teach you how to perform some essential job duties related to health careers and have some fun while you learn. Campers will put their learning into action in the state of the art Health Simulation Center. There campers will work with high fidelity manikins that breathe, blink, and are designed to build a health care practitioner’s confidence and competence in patient care. They have heart sounds, lung sounds and can talk as well. NIACC also utilizes the latest audio video technology to record these sessions for live viewing and playback. Campers will see how these situations play out on the big screen!
