These 6 Nurse Externs spent their summer tending to patients and assisting the nursing staff at the Medical Center, while learning to record 12 lead EKGs, draw blood, perform glucometer testing, and administer trach care and trach suctioning, facilitated by TSON Faculty. At the conclusion of the program, the externs worked collaboratively to present evidence based practices related to mobility enhancement / fall prevention.

As part of an ongoing effort to attract local students to the nursing profession, Trinitas School of Nursing has once again participated in the Nurse Camp program run by Trinitas Regional Medical Center’s Volunteer Services Director Lisa E. Liss.
For several years, Trinitas School of Nursing has been one of the most exciting stops for the Nurse Camp students. Seeing a potentially solid career path, many of the students find nursing an attractive choice.
“We love to have our School of Nursing students show the Nurse Camp students what they do, how they study and explain that the high schoolers can follow in their footsteps if they find nursing as interesting and rewarding as we all do,” states Dr. Rose Santee, Dean of the Trinitas School of Nursing.
One component of the time spent at the School of Nursing’s Union County Campus is a tour and demonstration at the Learning Simulation Center (LSC). “The Nurse Camp students LOVE the LSC,” said Mrs. Liss. “It gives them a glimpse into what studying nursing is like, and the Sim Lab shows it’s not just lectures and studying textbooks; it’s also practical, hands-on work with simulated patients.”
For the students, many find it confirms they want to pursue a career in nursing, or in healthcare. But, for a few, it also confirms that they don’t want to go down this path after all. Both outcomes have value, since it helps some of the students redirect their focus in another area.
LSC Director Dr. Lisa DiGiovanni finds that many of her students are eager to help others who have the same interests. For six weeks each summer, students rotate in groups of 10-12 through various departments of Trinitas Regional Medical Center, and the School of Nursing’s W. Jersey St. campus. “Interestingly, a lot of the students were former Nurse Camp students, so they understand the benefit of giving back and encouraging others to enter the field. We’re happy to host this leg of the ‘Nurse Camp Tour’ each year.”
A special thank you goes out to the Bank of America Charitable Foundation for providing the funding for Nurse Camp. Their donations help provide a lot of the equipment and supplies that are used in the various departments and locations where Nurse Camp takes place.
