Hello everyone, the nursing school
I attend distributed information today regarding the externships available this summer at the hospital I attend school at. Our instructor told us if we are interested to apply ASAP because there is only 15 slots available. I also work part-time in the hospital as a unit clerk in the NICU, but our NICU won't allow students to do externships. Of course that is the only unit that I have any desire to do my externship. Another hospital about 30 minutes away does allow students to do their externship in their level III nicu so I contacted the HR recruiter and she said she would send an information package to me in the mail. Since I have no idea of how long it will take her to actually send me this info, I was thinking of sending the nurse manager of the Nicu my resume directly instead of just waiting for the HR recruiter to send me info, etc. I just don't want the recruiter to feel like I'm stepping on her toes by going around her. I have already taken the S.T.A.B.L.E. course, I just took the NRP course last month and I have straight A's so far in all my prerequisites and nursing classes. I'm hoping that by including all of this along with my strong desire to be a Nicu nurse upon graduation will help me in getting a slot there. Any advice will be most appreciated. Thanks.
