Our instructor was telling us that after the 2nd semester we can apply at the hospitals around OKC for an extern job. Does anyone have any info on what this job consists of? (Pay rate, duties, hours)
Thanks in advance.
Yeah, I worked as an intern. It's roughly 8 hours per week. In the summer, you have the option to work almost 40 hours per week. You can get experience in head to toe assessments, helping with admit and discharge paper work, IV starts, foley catheters, etc. The nurses love having you around because you are able to do the things that they can not delegate to CNAs, like IVs and admits. The pay rate is roughly around $8 per hour but the experience is great. It's like going to clinical but getting paid for it. I did that for about 1 year before I graduated and it helped me land a job on the floor I was working on.
I highly recommend it because then it will be easier to get a job when you graduate. Good luck!
