Future Nurses Club Summer Camp

Imagine experiencing summer camp for the first time. For many of the students attending the Future Nurses Club Summer Camp, this is their first time on a college campus and their only chance to attend a summer camp. It costs $1,000 to send a student to summer camp and this Give Green Day we would like to raise enough funds to send ten students in Summer 2019!

Thanks to Alumni Board president Angela Strawn and her husband Richard, your donation on Give Green Day will be matched dollar for dollar up to a total of $5,000! To receive the Strawn’s matching gift, the College needs to raise at least $5,000 in the Give Green Day campaign.

The Future Nurses Club Summer Camp serves to ignite the possibility of a career in nursing for educationally and economically vulnerable high school students. This one-week residential camp is held each summer on Michigan State University’s campus. High school students live in a residential hall with mentors and participate in activities such as Heartsaver First Aid training (completing certification).

During the week students:

  • Interact with nursing faculty, students, and mannequins in the Janice and Alton Granger simulation lab
  • Learn about the MSU campus and the College of Nursing programs
  • Tour local hospitals

And, finally, these students become a community as they develop learning and life skills while making new friends.

Give to the College of Nursing and help send ten students to the Future Nurses Club Summer Camp!

Preparing for a career in nursing requires a strong commitment to academic studies in high school and college and this program helps prepare students.

The Future Nurses Club Summer Camp is part of the ACCESS program at Michigan State. The ACCESS Program helps motivated students prepare academically by providing financial and educational support to help earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and to help pass the licensing exam to become a registered nurse. An applicant admitted to MSU as a pre-nursing student who qualifies for the ACCESS Program, is eligible for the following resources and support:

  • Participation in a summer "transition to college" program
  • Biweekly networking and academic support enrichment sessions
  • Tutoring for prerequisite and nursing courses
  • Eligibility for stipends
  • Assessment and preparation for the NCLEX-RN exam
