High school students interested in nursing invited to free day camp at WVU School of Nursing

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — The West Virginia University School of Nursing will be hosting its second Day Camp on Saturday, June 1, 2024, for high school students who are interested in exploring nursing as a career.

During the free one-day event, students can experience what it’s like to be a nursing student by participating in an information session, a mock lecture and hands-on learning opportunities at the West Virginia Simulation Training and Education for Patient Safety (STEPS) Center.

“This event offers a chance for high school students to experience a day in the life of a nursing student,” said Phillip Engelkemier, Recruitment Specialist for the School of Nursing. “Attendees at our first event last year especially enjoyed being on campus and experiencing hands-on learning simulations.”

Students will be able to meet faculty members, including Dr. Brad Phillips, Associate Dean of Undergraduate Programs, and Dr. Tina Antill Keener, Director of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Program. They can also meet a current nursing student, who can provide insight and answer questions.

Attendees will receive a WVU School of Nursing shirt and lunch will be provided. Registration will be limited to the first 50 students who sign up. Please fill out the Qualtrics form to register.
