Register for Scrubs Camp at BHSU by Feb. 16 at www.scrubscamps.sd.gov.

Janet Crawford, Scrubs Camp coordinator at BHSU, said this is the ninth year that the University has provided this camp for students.

"This year we have presenters speaking about emergency room (ER) / intensive care unit nursing, biotechnology research and development, pharmacy, respiratory care therapy, psychology, physical therapy, dental hygiene, plastic surgery, anesthesia, EMS and career guidance/field experience," says Crawford.

The goal of Scrubs Camp is to provide an opportunity for students to explore a variety of healthcare careers. The hope is that by exposing high school students to many different areas of healthcare they will ultimately pursue a healthcare career.
