Certificate of Camp Nursing

  • Intro Course offered in Fall 2014
  • Planned Spring 2015 launch
  • 15-credit certificate

This certificate will expand undergraduate nursing courses for required elective credits and adds a certificate program for a niche market of nursing professionals in the expanding market of camps. The certificate was developed and has been endorsed by the Association of Camp Nurses (ACN) and the American Camp Association (ACA)

           American Camp Association            Educational Endorsement

American Camp Association (ACA http://www.acacamps.org/)  ACN also has a group of associate members; these are non-nurses (aka: camp professionals) with an interest in the camp health world. There are just over 2000 ACA accredited camps in the U.S. but no one knows the exact number of camps because some states do not require a camp to be licensed/registered to operate.
