Can any facility hire a student?

  1. Hi, I'm still in school and was wondering if anyone knew if any facility can hire a nursing student, or if only learning hospitals can.

    I don't know what a "learning hospital" is. Do you mean a teaching hospital? That is the label given to hospitals that host training programs for medical schools - doesn't really have any direct relevance for nursing. Nursing education rotations happen at all sorts of hospitals/facilities.

    Any employer can hire a student nurse if she/he qualifies for a job at that organization. Some employers have jobs designed just for nursing students, but you could also work as a nurse aid, transporter, clerk, etc... anything that does not require a license.
