For four days in June, during her summer vacation, she went to camp at Widener University School of Nursing, Chester, PA--to get the real scoop about nursing as a career. Along with 14 other campers—students from Pennsylvania and New Jersey high schools--Togba had a firsthand opportunity to find out if her image of nursing is an accurate one."
