Health science camps promote careers and college

PULLMAN, Wash. – As most teens celebrate the end of the school year, 55 Native American and underserved high school students statewide are returning to learning for two weeks to explore health science careers at Washington State University.
The Na-ha-shnee Health Science Institute, designed for Native Americans, and the Creating a Nursing Path program, benefiting underserved students from Rogers High School (Spokane, Wash.), Pasco High School (Pasco, Wash.) and Davis High School (Yakima, Wash.), are under way June 17-28 at the Pullman campus.

WSU’s Nahashnee Creates Possibilities

PULLMAN, Wash. – Across the United States, there are less than 20 Native Americans who have earned a PhD in Nursing. Robbie Paul, Native American Health Sciences director at WSU Spokane, is dedicated to increasing the number of Native Americans practicing health sciences in the Northwest.

Her dedication is one of the reasons that 25 high school students from 16 Native American tribes and 27 Washington high school students will complete an immersion experience at the Na-ha-shnee Health Science Institute on the campus of Washington State University over the next two weeks.
