Collin College hosted its third annual Nurse Camp Aug. 1-3 at the Central Park Campus in McKinney.

About 60 junior high and high school students from the area attended the camp, which is intended to teach interested students about careers in nursing.

Activities included training in CPR, live simulations, a tour of a CareFlite helicopter, games and a live code situation led by Collin College nursing students.

Sixty other students attended an earlier Nurse Camp in June.
