Mondamin and Green Cove are private, brother-sister summer camps located on Lake Summit, six miles south of Hendersonville, NC.
We are considering hiring either a Nurse Assistant or a Student Nurse for the first time this year. This person would assist our two RN's in the infirmary. We could take this Assistant for either all summer, or just late May and June, or 5 weeks over July, or 8 weeks over July and August.
There are approximately 190 campers (age 7 to 17) at each camp for each session, and about 55 counselors, camper-counselor ratio being about 3.5:1.
Applicants must be in a four year nursing degree program and should be in their 3rd or 4th year.
There would be times throughout the week when you would be free to participate in camp activities. Most nurses enjoy the active lifestyle of camp; if you like to swim, play tennis, ride, sail, etc., you can easily participate. During this time you are, of course, available for duty when needed. Most issues are the garden variety splinters, blisters, scrapes and bruises, with the occasional tummy ache, sore throat, etc. We have to be prepared, of course, for the more serious emergency, such as a broken bone, concussion, etc. We use a two-way radio system for fast response.
You live in the camp health center and eat in the dining hall. You have 36 hours leave per week. Salary would be in the range of our first year counselors, which is around $300 per week plus room and board, but that would depend on your certifications, age and experience. Salary would increase if you already have your nursing degree, or if you have experience on the job.
