Memorial is currently accepting applications for the Teens Experiencing Nursing (T.E.N.) summer camp. The application deadline is April 5, 2013.
T.E.N. Camp, to be held July 15-18, gives area high school students the opportunity to personally experience nursing education and nursing practice, and encourages them to pursue a rewarding and essential career.

Participants will also have the opportunity to job shadow on several of our nursing units and interact with nursing staff.
