ACN Camp Health Online Courses

Honestly, I think the diabetes course was really good! Having cared for a diabetic camper for 3 summers, the information and examples were everything we encountered. This course included all of the important topics needed to know…..I think this course is great for camp nurse review.

What a great overall course! (Intro to Camp Nursing) I needed some structure after I volunteered to be the camp nurse for a church camp. I didn’t know my state has standards already – If I didn’t follow those – or document that I followed those – I would be responsible, either way. I am especially pleased to have guidance on dispensing meds…….

This is to coolest kind of nursing! who knew? As an empty nester who works in public health nursing, this was a great seed to plant. 

The first aid supply list had many great ideas. Thank you!
