Camp introduces adolescents to nursing

Some high school students are getting hands on experience in the medical field.

Camp BONES (Brigade Of Nurse Exploring Seahawks) was established four years ago to introduce minorities into the nursing field. The program now has over 40 students from eight different counties.

The campers spend a few weeks every summer learning medical techniques like caring for newborns.

For one week, students work alongside nurses at New Hanover Regional Medical Center.

For some, it’s a look at their future career. “I feel like I have the ability to be a nurse, and I just love to be around people. I’m very social,” said Khadijah Campbell.

Registered nurse Sharon Natalicchio was on hand to help the campers. “Nursing is a great career, and we need and desire lots of people that enjoy taking care of others.”

By the time high school graduation comes around for the Bones campers, they’ll get a nursing assistant certification, along with their diploma, for participating in the four-year program.
