Additional Information

The NP/supervisor will round at each camp to assess and treat participants as requested by the camp nurse, as well as to support and supervise camp health staff (one head nurse plus four health house assistants at each of three programs: Aloha, Aloha Hive, and Lanakila). Additionally, the NP/supervisor will, in conjunction with head nurses, develop and deliver education modules to health house assistants. Education topics are at the discretion of the nursing staff, and could include topics like wound care, parenteral therapy, NCLEX prep, or caring for adolescents.
