externship opportunities

by CNA2day CNA2day Member

I was wondering if anyone had any info about externships available for nursing students. I saw Mayo clinic has one that is a summer externship. I also wondered if anyone had been accepted to one and what it took to get in and what the experience was like.

Thanks guys!

Hey! I did an externship last summer and it was a great experience! Are you in your junior year of nursing school right now? There are many different externship/internship opportunities, although many (like Mayo clinic) post the applications in the fall so it would be too late to apply for the upcoming summer. However, NYP has one posted right now on their website and I'm sure other hospitals are still hiring externs as well, just use Google and search the job listings for hospitals you're interested in.
