What better place to share your nursing skills than in the White Mountains of New Hampshire? In this majestic setting, our camp nurses play an essential role in the care and safety of campers and staff alike.
Our six-person team of professionally licensed nurses works with our Athletic Trainer and full-time in-residence doctor in our health center. Nurses are responsible for the daily distribution of medication, updating charts, medical logs, camp books and tracking supply inventory. Our nurses also arrange appointments with local doctors and dentists. Communication with the parents of children under your care is essential.
Your work schedule allows plenty of flexibility, allowing you the comfort and enjoyment of Walt Whitman’s facilities. Imagine wrapping up your shift with a refreshing swim in our lake or pool or reading a book while enjoying the afternoon sun. Accommodations for our nursing staff provide some much-needed privacy, as you will have a private room and a screened-in porch.
Our health center bustles with the daily bumps and bruises accumulated by kids having fun, along with treating other common ailments.
Though the pandemic introduced new testing and safety protocols, it didn’t impact the quality of life for the nursing staff. Quite the contrary, according to Emily Agostino, a traveling nurse who had been performing “high stress acute care” at hospitals around the country prior to arriving at Camp Walt Whitman.
“You got to exist for 2 months in this healthy, happy bubble where you [didn’t] have to worry about the pandemic, which was a huge psychological relief for everyone,” she said.
Beyond the summer offering a “break” from the pandemic, it was also a terrific experience for her family overall.
“It’s great to get paid to do a fun job and also know that your kids are having an amazing experience and being cared for.”
