About Scrubs Academies

The Scrubs Academies aim to increase awareness, interest, and understanding of healthcare careers available in rural North Dakota through creative and interactive activities, and consists of Scrubs Academy I and Scrubs Academy II. The goal is to encourage students in junior high and high school to pursue a career in the healthcare field and ultimately practice in North Dakota. The Scrubs Academies serve as mini-preparation programs to strengthen academic skill sets associated with health disciplines, introduce adolescents to a higher education experience, and foster a relationship between the students and healthcare professionals.
