This one week camp will provide high school students with the opportunity to learn how to administer CPR/first aid, blood pressure /heart rate, simulation demonstrations, and include tours of IU Health Methodist, the Indiana Medical Museum, Riley Children’s Hospital, and the Indiana Medical Museum. Students will be exposed to many aspects and areas of nursing as well as Ivy Tech’s nursing program.
