GAIN - Genesis Adventures In Nursing

This week long morning camp held each summer at Genesis Medical Center, Davenport will provide an opportunity for students who have completed the 8th grade through graduating High School Seniors to explore nursing and health care careers. The camp is designed to provide an exciting week-long adventure, where participants will have first-hand encounters in various nursing and health care opportunities and through hands-on mock situations and simulations experience what it may be like to be a Genesis nurse.

In 2016 we wanted to know if GAIN Camp truly influenced our campers to pursue a career in nursing or health care. A research study was conducted by surveying GAIN camp participants who completed the program between 2009-2016. The survey revealed that GAIN Camp HAS been influential in participants’ decision to pursue a career in health care. Of the respondents, 67% were pursuing a career in health care.

Pre-registration forms are delivered to Quad City area High School Guidance Counselors the first week in April each year.
