“A collaborative project between BSU, NTC and Sanford Health, Scrubs Camp offers students an opportunity to explore the many careers in the health sciences,” a release said. “Students will participate in hands-on learning sessions and investigate possible health care disciplines that interest them.”

Some of the health care areas that may be explored include nursing, emergency responder, rural community health, oncology, surgery and mental health among others.
