Allen College and AHEC Offer Nurse Camps

November 29, 2010

Waterloo, Iowa—The Northeast Iowa Area Health Education Center (AHEC) partnered with Allen College to offer two one-day nurse camps this fall. The camps, held October 19th and November 9th at Allen College, hosted high school students interested in exploring the nursing profession and preparing to pursue a college degree in nursing. Students learned about basic nursing skills, admission requirements for nursing school, the different levels of nursing and the vast array of job opportunities available to nurses.

The camp provided students the opportunity to interact with Allen College nursing students, faculty and staff, as well as Allen Hospital nurses. Campers walked away with a clear understanding of the profession and the ever-growing need for nurses in the United States.

"It was very informative, solidified my choice in education and opened my eyes to how I can use my education," praised one student.
