Twenty-three students interested in pursuing health care careers participated in Lake Regional Health System’s 2013 Career Camp, held July 11-12 at Lake Regional Hospital in Osage Beach, Mo.
Throughout the two-day camp, participants gained an understanding of careers in nursing, rehab therapies, laboratory, surgery and respiratory therapy. They also learned about patient confidentiality, infection control, medical terminology, data management, professional schools in Missouri, scholarship opportunities, recommended preparation courses for a career in health care and more.
“The camp shows students a variety of health care career options they otherwise might not have known about,” said Billye Bennett, R.N., camp director. “Knowing what you don’t want to be is just as important as knowing which job you want.”
