Nursing Camp

Due to COVID-19, and out of concern for the safety of our guests, we have canceled all summer academic camps for 2020. We would love to host you for a campus visit when it is safe to do so. If you would like information on any of our academic programs, please contact Admissions.

July 13-17, 2020

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.
