Aspiring Nurses Camp: June 16-17

Aspiring Nursing Camp is offered for high school Juniors and Seniors for the 2021-22 school year. The camp provides a learning opportunity for students considering a career in nursing or just want to know more about nursing.

In this 2-day camp students will have the opportunity to learn through hands on experiences of various nursing skills.  Some skills may include: patient confidentiality, assessment, lab draws, infection control, obstetrical care and baby care.

Camp attendees will also have the opportunity to meet ACONHP faculty and to hear more about their nursing experiences. A tour of campus, overnight stay in the residence hall and informational sessions on admissions, early admission option for nursing and honors program will also be a part of the experience.


Camp fee of $50 includes overnight accommodations in the residence hall, a t-shirt, breakfast on the 17th and lunches and snacks both days.

Students are asked to bring money for dinner the evening of June 16 as students and chaperones will walk a few blocks to some great downtown dining.  Some of the restaurants may include: Ricatoni’s, Rosie’s, 306 BBQ, Yumm Thai and Pie Factory.  The cost will vary depending on your order, but plan for a minimum of $15-$20.


Students are encouraged to wear a T-Shirt representing their high school for day 1. All participants will receive a UNA Anderson College of Nursing and Health Professions t-shirt to wear day 2. Scrubs or khaki pants are preferred as professional attire.  Modest casual clothing is recommended for dinner downtown Florence the night of June 16.


Participants are encouraged to be actively engaged in the camp. We will request phones be put away except during breaks. All COVID safety guidelines of the University and City of Florence will be followed during camp. During the registration process each participant will need to provide information for an emergency contact available in case of illness. This should be someone that is available the entire time of camp as any participant showing signs and symptoms of illness will need to have a plan to be able to leave campus immediately.
