I have an interview soon with IU Health for their Patient Care Intern position (Indianapolis). It used to be called a Student Nurse Extern, but they changed the name recently. I'm interested in any experiences the forum members may have had/be having with the internship position. General info such as pay, scheduling/hours, +/- work experiences, do you like it/hate it, etc. I'm also interested if anyone knows what the potential is to be hired on later as a full time RN.
Thanks ahead of time for any/all responses!
yes, i agree. they do typically tend to hire 'their own', so i think it would be great to get your foot in the door. MOST of the nurse tech/nurse interns end up working as an RN on their unit once they pass boards (i work at another IU Health facility). and our nurse interns generally work the same shift a regular nurse tech would work.. 12 hour shifts, same pay ($9-$10). it might depend on your region you're applying to however.
