Tri-C Student Immersion into Flight Nursing and Disaster Management

fpb and tri-c logos

Students will experience the exciting nursing specialty of air medical transport through lectures/activities focused on the austere environment of flight. The career is challenging and requires knowledge and advanced skills not typically found in a nursing program. Our annual flight camp is a week long summer event focused on lecture topics and skill stations that help students prepare for careers in flight. Please take some time and watch following lectures from flight camp this past summer.
