Tips for getting a nursing job at a summer camp
If you are already licensed as a registered nurse, certified in CPR and First Aid, a person who enjoys being with children, teens or others of various ages who attend summer camps, then this kind of a job might be just perfect for you.
While there are many camps for “normal” children, there are a growing number of specialized summer camps, that may be of interest you. Camping is not something that just “normal” children do, for several weeks out of the year. That is only one option that you might consider, but look at some other options as well. Start doing online research.
Specialized camps often provide training for registered nurses, in areas like weight control and diabetes. There may be courses for those interested in working with handicapped or disabled children, teens and adults. This may include training about lifts or transfers, for campers confined to wheelchairs. Everyone loves swimming and water therapy is always beneficial for the disabled or handicapped. You might also learn how to teach water safety.
