The Scott & White College of Nursing at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor welcomed high school students to campus for a weeklong camp that offered a look at the nursing school and college life at UMHB. Before they were accepted to the program, junior and senior high school students submitted essays explaining why they wanted to participate in Explore Cru Nursing Summer Camp. During camp, they were introduced to core concepts of nursing through classroom lectures, discussions and simulations in the Isabelle Rutherford Meyer Nursing Education Center, as well as the spiritual and educational environment at UMHB.
