In your role as a Nurse Extern, you will become part of our Magnet patient care delivery workforce. You will gain meaningful patient care experiences throughout this time and are provided with weekly nursing education classes throughout your 8 week experience.
The first two weeks of the program, Externs will go through a thorough orientation. The following six weeks, program participants will be paired with preceptors and be assigned to work on hospital units.
