I have no idea about the program really. I have been looking into externships over the summer and winter breaks as well. I looked at Bayview and UMMC so far. Everything you need to know should be on their website. Looks like at least a 3.0 and have your CNA license. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Let us know if you find anything out. This will be my first semester junior year so I have to wait until next semester to get into something like this since I won't have my CNA license until after this semeser.
Which state do you live in? I am also starting nursing school, and I am taking fundamentals of nursing that would qualify me to be a CNA (in theory). But in CA I am not automatically licensed. I would have to challenge the test through CA public health or take the test through Red Cross. I wished I was CNA certified after my first semester of nursing school. It would make sense..
Yes, I will let you know if I hear anything else. I really want this externship... I need as much experience I can get.
No wonder the internship requires you to be CNA certified. Are you close to JH Hospital? Have you ever tried to call them/ or get a hold of them? That way you can find out the statistics of how many apps they get, how many they accept, etc. Then you would have a ball park where you stand.
Yes, I am close to JHU...like 25 min away. I volunteer for JHU, the Bayview campus. I haven't looked into specifics yet since I am not yet eligible. But I can ask who to contact next time I go in to volunteer. If I get info, I will let you know.
Ok thanks! Much appreciated. Ya and maybe ask how to be a competitive applicant, etc. This info would help to see if I have a chance. I really really want this internship (if you can't tell already). Thanks again!
