April 15, 2015

High school students will receive an up-close look at healthcare careers at SoutheastHEALTH’s Healthcare Professionals Camp this summer in Cape Girardeau.

High school juniors and seniors, who are considering healthcare careers, won’t want to miss this unique opportunity. The camp will be held at the SoutheastHEALTH College of Nursing & Health Sciences and various clinical sites in Cape Girardeau, including Southeast Hospital.

Campers will shadow nurses and other healthcare professionals in patient care areas, earn CPR certification, learn to use a stethoscope and take blood pressures, and talk with SoutheastHEALTH College of Nursing & Health Sciences faculty and graduates.

Campers also will have an opportunity to learn about specialty areas such as pediatrics, surgery, intensive care, labor and delivery, emergency services and radiology.

The camp, which is open to boys and girls, will be held June 14 to 16. Enrollment deadline is Thursday, May 7.

The College of Nursing & Health Sciences offers the annual camp in partnership with SoutheastHEALTH and the SoutheastHEALTH Foundation.

Tuition includes all meals and two nights lodging in a Southeast Missouri State University residence hall. Enrollment is limited. Applications are being accepted now.
