Nursing Career Academy

Calling all high school students interested in NURSING!

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to study nursing and become a nurse someday, this is the academy for you. This five-day up-close look at nursing will give you experience with the equipment, techniques, and heart of the nursing profession. You’ll learn from and work closely with amazing Huntington University Department of Nursing faculty and immediately apply what you’ve learned in the lab and in the field. 

High school students interested in earning college credit this summer have an opportunity to do just that at HU’s Nursing Academy! To learn more, contact Professor Nancy Richison at
