Wow, that is great pay! What camp do you work at? What's the infirmary like and what is your room like? How many nurses and campers were there? There is such a huge difference in camps, the pay scale and the way they view the health center and the nurses. I'd love to hear more.
Our Health Center is pretty modern. The Health Center has an office, med room, private kitchen, isolation room, large infirmary room and two private rooms for the nurses and their families. It is a regular mattress for the nurse but bunk beds for his/her children. There is wireless internet and a telephone line in the Health Center. I am the person responsible for supplies so we are very well stocked!!!!
We have one nurse of day camp and one nurse for overnight camp. The camper numbers vary.....Day camp can have about 225 and Overnight can have about 120. Not all the campers are on regular scheduled meds so med pass time is not too extensive. For the past 3 summers, our health center has not been swamped with kids,,,,,there has been a sporadic flow of kids in for basic first aid and minor complaints. Had to send a few kids to the ER for orthopedic injuries.
