Hey everyone just wanted some feedback on nursing externship programs. I am finding they are hard to come by especially for a student such as myself who is in a 2 year ABSN program and spend my summers in school back to back. Now that I entering the home stretch before graduation, I have been working like crazy trying to find jobs either as a unit clerk/secretary, a tech, or volunteer at a hospital with no such luck.
When I do search for nursing externship programs they either are booked up, not being offered any longer, or as I previously stated, hard to complete because I am always in school.
Did any of you attend a nursing externship?
Was it worth it?
Did it give you the experience you needed in your field or did you change your choice in a nursing career based on your experience?
Any feedback would greatly be appreciated
