  The University of Toledo College of Nursing held its first-ever Rocket Nursing Camp in July 2022. In this camp, Campers learn all about what it means to be a nurse while engaging in fun, hands-on activities, and making friends! This camp includes activities in the nursing lab as well as Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center. It is a 2-day, day camp.
