Penn Nurse Externship 2017

  1. Hello All,
    I've noticed that there is no conversation about the Penn Nurse Externship Program that begins this summer so I thought I would create this as an area to talk about the application/hiring process! I applied to the Penn Student Nurse Externship Program in January and just heard back last week about an online interview (which I completed!). Im currently waiting to hear back about an in-person interview!

    Did anyone else apply, if so when did you hear back from Penn and were you notified of an In-Person Interview?!

    I also applied in January, but I haven't heard anything my application status just says "considering".

    Hey Jenga3! I just had an online interview it didnt specify what unit I was applying for but they did ask which are my two two areas of interest and I said ED and Critical Care! D

    Did you have an in-person interview yet?! If so, when did they contact you?! Im really nervous because HUP is my dream hospital!

    I got an email on Friday from a recruiter saying they're just trying to match people. And I believe I said my top 3 were the emergency department, women's health, and med-surg?

    Congrats Coffeefirst on the in-person! I haven't heard anything from them unfortunately but I was wondering what unit since I thought maybe not all the specialties had gotten around to interviewing yet.
