Hi guys,

I was just wondering if externships are purely for people who are still in nursing school (btw summers and during the school yr) or can new grads also apply for externships?

I will be started an accelerated BSN program this coming fall and since its an accelerated program, won't have time to do an externship during the school yr.


Specializes in ER, ICU, Medsurg.

Typically externships are for those that have 1 year left of school. In my extern program, we do this summer of externing and then after we graduate next spring, we do a 12 week internship and then are pretty much guaranteed a position as an RN (God willing).

Good Luck to you
