For the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ

Nursing Camp

June 12-16, 2017

At Nursing Camp, you will receive superior instruction by outstanding nursing faculty in our state-of-the-art nursing facilities. Best of all, Nursing Camp will emphasize the importance of spiritual development as it relates to nursing.

Nursing Camp experiences will include an introduction to a Christian philosophy of nursing, practical experience with basic nursing skills, great fun and fellowship, one-on-one interaction with nursing faculty and current Cedarville nursing students and an overview of career opportunities in the field of nursing.

You will also complete the highly-regarded American Heart Association (AHA) CPR for Health Care Providers.

Nursing Camp is open to Christian students entering 11th and 12th grades, or incoming freshmen to Cedarville University, who are considering nursing as a career.
