Students get a jump start on their career

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Tuesday and Wednesday, area students attended a nursing camp at NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital.

The students learned CPR, first aid and even had the chance to shadow the professionals.

Tyler Glover from Riverside hopes to become a surgeon and said nursing camp is an opportunity that shouldn't be missed.

"This will definitely help you make a decision as to where you want to go," Glover said. "So, it does help influence your decision and it shows you a great opportunity."

Kaitlyn Riggin will be a senior next year at Weiner High School and said she's thrilled with everything she learned and saw.

"I'm really excited about job shadowing because I've really wanted to do that for a while in the nursing field. So I'm pretty excited about that and the CPR," Riggin said.

There were so many applicants some had to be turned away, however they hope to expand the program next year.
