SUMMER 2024 NURSE EXTERNSHIP (May 20 - July 27, 2024)


The Summer Nurse Externship is a 10-week program designed for ASN and BSN nursing students who will have at least one clinical semester completed by the start of this program. The Externship begins with a two-week orientation including both classroom and clinical components, in which the nurse extern performs basic bedside care and selected nursing procedures. The Nurse Extern is assigned to a Registered Nurse throughout the Externship to perform basic bedside care and selected nursing procedures. Nurse Externs partner with an RN to learn and demonstrate physical assessment skills and learn and demonstrate routine basic care skills (bathing, safety, and hygiene activities). This is for a nursing student entering their final year of an accredited nursing program.
