Today I went to a discussion about the UMMC's summer externship program. Apparently it's a residency program? It just seems so amazing with what you do and that you will be exposed to. I didn't think about UMMC at all because of the drive it would be for me once I'm back at home during the summer... But it'll be 3 days a week so I figured that's okay to handle since gas is cheaper now and they pay $15 with 15% night differentials. I'm obviously not in it for only the money, the experience they seem to promise is breath taking.
You are also required to take various classes and keep journals on your experience. Is this the same for other externships also?
Anyway, does anyone have expereince with this program? Is this different from other externship programs? Before coming to this meeting I had my mind set on going to Washington Hospital Center for the location and other great things I've heard. I know I'm still going to apply to both but they kept stressing on how we won't be a student nurse, we'll be a student nurse resident and will get to do more than a student nurse (is that what you are when you apply to other externships?) and techs.
