I work for Presbyterian but in an outpatient clinic at Ana Kaseman. Just as an FYI, I tried getting in as a nurse extern but at the time I looked there were no positions available. Did you apply online for the position? That was how I found out if there were any positions available. I found that the only way you get into the program was if you already had your foot in the door working as CNA. Getting on at Presbyterian is difficult - my suggestion is to keep persuing online and try calling Human Resorces. Also, driving down to the main office and speaking with someone face-to-face for information. Good luck!

I finally had someone at ClinEd call me back. They don't have the nurse extern program anymore due to the in house nursing school
. They put clinicals in those spots now. The lady said if a manager wanted to open up a position they could. I talked to the director of the E.D. at main and she said they didnt have the money for it. One of my friends asked the L&D manager and she said the same thing. Some of the managers are moving to the new hospital and there are alot of intrum managers for the time being. HAHA I don't see a spot opening up before I graduate. There was actully a Nurse Extern in the PMG Hospital in Socorro but that's a bit far.

Just an aside...I tried several times to get someone to call me back from Pres HR and I couldn't get them to. Wonder how they treat staff.....or is it just the stereotypical "evil HR" story
