Isaac Cuevas Lopez, a Bremerton High School senior, is one of those teen aspirants who wants learn the mechanics to get into the most in demand job that is nursing.
“My mind was all over the place with a lot of different careers and everything, and then it just hit me when I started wearing these scrubs yesterday, when they gave us these, I just felt like this is real,” Lopez said in a statement.
Carolyn Chow, director of admissions and student diversity for the UW School of Nursing said nearly half of the teens in the camp end up pursuing nursing careers.
“It's one of the only majors at the undergraduate level where you can get a job right out of your bachelor’s degree, guaranteed,” Chow said
UW is trying to recruit various workforce and the summer camp targets high schoolers who are minorities or from low-income families. Under the program, they learn basic medical skills and get to see how nurses interact with actual patients.
