A group of students in Winona is getting a sneak peak at a career in healthcare.
High school students enrolled in Winona State's 'Scrubs Camp' were at Winona Health Thursday to get a first-hand look at a variety of careers including nursing, pharmacy work, and veterinary medicine.
Students say the camp gives them a chance to try medical fields they've always been interested in and even open their eyes to other fields they didn't know existed.
"At first, when you would say medical field, I'd think of like touching bodies and I wasn't very interested in that. But now I see that there's other stuff aside from the guts and gruesomeness of it, so that I actually found very interesting and I figured it could be something I want to pursue," said student Somto Chinedu-Eneh.
The 'Scrubs Camp' started at Winona State in 2008 and has since spread across the state of Minnesota.
