UW Nurse Camp

UW Nursing Summer Symposium 2021

Safety and health are the UW School of Nursing’s priorities. To align with the UW campus being online during the Summer, we will NOT be holding an on-campus UW Nurse Camp. This year, instead, there will be a fully online Nursing Summer Symposium.

Current high school sophomores and juniors who are interested in learning about the nursing field and how to get into nursing school are invited to apply.

This is a free week-long symposium geared towards increasing access and opportunities in nursing to minority and low-income high school sophomores and juniors who are at least 16 years of age by the first day of camp. Students from all backgrounds are welcome and encouraged to apply.


The UW Nursing Summer Symposium will be held completely online from July 12 – 16, 2021. More details will be available soon.


The application for the 2021 UW Nursing Summer Symposium is now closed. If you would like information on our 2022 Nurse Camp, please add your information to our email list


For more information about this year’s symposium, please email uwnursecamp@uw.edu.
