About Adena Nursing Camp

Three Days in the Life of a Nurse

What is Nursing Camp?

Adena Health System, in collaboration with the United Way, is offering a nursing focused summer camp to current high school freshmen and sophomores, who have a career interest in a nursing. The camp will have two sessions 1) June 10-12 and 2) July 8-10 from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. and will be held at Adena Regional Medical Center in Chillicothe.

In addition to their shadowing experience, Adena nursing camp students will receive hands-on training in patient care, first aid and CPR certification in Adena’s Virtual Hospital.
