I am in my second semester of nursing school. (I will be finished next year at this time
When I am finished I will have my accociates degree.
My question is about externships for the summer. I didn't even know they existed until one of my class mates had asked me about it.
Does anyone know what hospitals participate in a nurse externship program? I am even willing to go to NYC as well. Also, is there a difference between a nurse extern and a nursing assistant? (pay, job duties?)
I am currently a CNA and have been for 5 years. I am interestd in the externship for a few reasons but mainly because I want more clinical experience as a nurse.
If a nurse extern does the same thing as a CNA then it doesn't make sense for me to leave my current job. I just wanted more experience as a nurse before I graduate next year.
Thank you inn advance.
