    Loved my externship in the ED! Only six spots granted each year. Great learning experience.

    Congrats on being selected!

    Be sure you know what the nurse practice act in your state (if USA) allows you to do. In Texas a nurse extern does not have a scope of practice and can only perform duties same as any unlicensed, but trained, person can do. In other words, like a CNA. Even with RN supervision their is probably a cap on what you can do legally. Good luck and learn lots!
