“Going into the pandemic, we already had a million nurse shortage across the entire country,” said Natalie Jones, executive director at Wellstar Health System, in an interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “We’ve got to figure out creative ways to get young people excited about nursing.”

The application portal for the camp is open now, and the deadline to apply is May 13. Chosen applicants will be notified via email by May 27.

Wellstar is planning additional workshops throughout the year for those wanting to explore the profession while still in high school.

“It’s our responsibility to be a role model and provide these types of experiences.” said Jones.
