Shadowing a Nurse in the Boston Area

  1. 0 Hi,

    I am applying for Jan 2004 entrance into a nursing program in the Boston area. However before I do that I would like to take everyone's advice and actually shadow a nurse. Does anyone know of a hospital that will allow this practice? If so where can I try this? I have been hearing that it can be a liability issue.

    Please Help..!!

    By the way.. would being in an ICU unit for approx 3 days with a sick family member even be remotely close...... I really want a good picture of this profession before I take serious steps to enter it. I am currently taking my pre reqs and I want to be sure especially since it is a second career.

    Thanks in advance,
