Summer Externships 2013

  1. 0 Hello All,I am very new to this website and it really warms my heart to see everyone helping and consoling each other.I am a junior nursing student and I am interested in doing an externship over the summer. I know there are a few posts about this but a lot of them are from years ago and I wanted some more current advice. My dream is to be in the NSLIJ-Healthcare system so I would love to get an externship with them or NY Presbyterian is a close second.I hate to bother you all with the same things again but could anybody offer up any advice as to how to go about the process of applying, where/when they applied (I'm from Queens so to hear from people who applied to or did the NSLIJ externship or NY Presbyterian would be awesome but all advice is welcomed! haha), what you got out of the experience, how was your interview, etc. I would really love and appreciate the feedback. Thanks!

    Welcome to the site! That's REALLY good your considering a nursing externship so early on in your education! Because as you know .. It's soooooo hard to get hired as a new graduate RN, especially lately and the more you do to grow that resume , the better!. Now anyway, answering your question...

    -LIJ has externships that they post on their career page periodically , you can sign up from job alerts through indeed or even the LIJ website so that you will be notified the moment they post any... But I'm almost 100% positive only new graduate BSN students are allowed but i could be wrong
    -NYP has a nursing assistant position that is meant for nursing students, i forgot the exact title, so just google their jobs page

    If your heart is set on NYP and LIJ then i def recommend checking out their web pages and getting a general email address to HR for information.

    Hi toussaint03, this is my first time on here and like you am trying to get information regarding NSLIJ externship for the summer. I've been searching though google and I cant find any information. I know Lenox Hill ususally offers one but they too havent posted any information. Does anyone know who to contact, possibly a nurse recruiter for North Shore LIJ? Thanks!!

    Hi Nessa0387
    I have tried to stay on top of the info for NSLIJ and i feel like the application might possibly go up this week or next..I spoke to a recruiter recently and she basically said to watch the website and check everyday because once the application goes up its only up for a few days. As far as who to speak to, you should be able to find a number on the website. Thats what i did so i dont quite remember the number off the top of my head. Hopefully that helps!

    Thanks I'll continue to check the website. I've been looking for it on the carrer site for NSLIJ cause when I click on the link for the Lenox Hill externship thats where it conitnues to take me. Were you told to look for a posting on NSLIJ regular site?

    Hey! I have been keeping a close watch on the New York Presbyterian summer nurse externship program. I see there is an 'event' open on the NYP website about the externship program and that it closes march 4, does this mean the application? or is that just information? because I cant seem to find the application anywhere!
    any help would be appreciated!

    Yea it was just an event I guess for us to be aware that the posting was going to go up but it says it will go up the first week of march so i guess just check the website everyday to be safe.
