Yes, I also saw that St. Francis in Peoria is starting to take nurse externship applications. I don't think their formal process begins until the winter, but you can apply and they will send you a list of requirements. I am looking for specifically Chicago area, maybe U of Chi Med Center? I sent an email out them and the response I received said they don't do summer externships, but I am not sure I believe it! If you or anyone out there knows whether they do or not, and what other summer extern programs Chicago offers, that would be great.
Are you in IL/IN or out of state? I would be coming from MO, and am looking for programs out of state.
Any advice would be much appreciated!
