Baptist Union City hosts new crop of future health care pros

Baptist Union City recently hosted its annual Crash Course Nurse Camp to expose high school students to the health care industry, primarily nursing.

“The goal of Crash Course Nurse Camp is to promote the nursing profession to young people so they select appropriate high school course work and can begin setting goals for their future careers,” said Lori Brown, chief nursing officer at Baptist Union City.

During the camp, students learned about the educational requirements, skills, typical job duties and personal qualities of nurses. They participated in interactive, hands-on activities that highlight the skills, equipment, technology and resources used by nurses and other health professionals.

The Tennessee Hospital Association and other organizations have recognized Crash Course Nurse Camp for its unique approach to workforce development.
