Hello All, I just finished my 3rd semester of nursing, and I applied for a nurse externship at Shepherd Center in Atlanta a while ago for the summer. I haven't heard anything and I know orientation starts June 3rd. I really don't know anything about their selection process, and would really like to know when I could expect to hear something? I don't want to be a pest by contacting the recruiter, I'm afraid that might be looked at negatively. So I'm looking to connect with nursing students or nurses who might have previously gone through this program. If I don't get selected will they contact me to let me know I'm not a candidate or is it like any other job where if you don't hear from them then you weren't selected? Also do they contact you by phone or mail if you are a candidate?
Also, if anybody has done this program I would love to hear about the experience you had there. I'm interested in this type of nursing, so I want to do this program so I can see how I like it. Has anybody done the nurse extern program and then gotten hired on as a new graduate? Any help would be immensely appreciated!
