LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- UNLV School of Nursing is working to inspire the next generation of healthcare workers.

From July 12-16 and July 19-23, high school students and recent high school graduates can be apart of the college's Nurse Camp.

Coordinator of the camp Minnie Wood said it's an opportunity to catch students early if they have even the slightest interest in the field.
