Hi, I was wondering if anyone could give me some places to start looking for a summer job in a hospital. I will be starting my first year in an ASN program next year, so I don't have any clinical experience yet. I also do not have nurses aide training. I was wondering about other jobs that I could work in that would allow me to be in a hospital setting. A girl in my anatomy class works as an orderly and I was wondering what you have to do to get a job like that. If anyone has any information about hiring in such positions, please give me some info. Also, if anyone has any advice on how to get working in a hospital please feel free to respond. Thanks in advance!!!

I can't give you any advice, but as far as I know, an orderly is another name for a nurses aide, usually men are called orderlys. At least where I am, it's the same thing. Once you start nursing school and have done 75 hours of clinical, you can take the test to be a CNA.

Most hospitals have transport people. That's one place you can get a job. the other is with warehouse, stocking etc. WE have our own transporters in the ER, and we teach them how to do B/P's and 12 lead EKG's etc. they help us out a lot.
