Summer Nursing Camp

Are you a high school student, considering a career in nursing? Then Briar Cliff's nursing camp, which has been featured in The Journal of Nursing Education, is a great way to discover what the field is really like:

  • Shadow professional nurses. Find out which area of nursing interests you most  — from the intensive care unit to the emergency room, surgery, pediatrics, clinical settings and more.
  • Gain hands-on experience. Learn to take blood pressure, pulse and other vital signs inside Briar Cliff's state-of-the-art nursing simulation labs.
  • Learn about the nursing major. Connect with professors and meet current BCU nursing students, and learn what it's like going to school to become a nurse. 
  • Make new friends. Meet other students who are also interested in nursing ... they might even be your future classmates! You'll team up on a service project, hold the traditional "nursing camp barbecue party," and stay overnight in the campus residence halls.

A tradition of excellence in nursing education.
