NP shadowing in Seattle area?

  1. I have my bachelor'sdegree, am a volunteer as a nurse's aide (currently taking CNA class), and have applied to Seattle University's Nurse Practitioner program.In order to get more insight into the career, I was curious if any of you work for an organization which offers opportunities to shadow nurse practitioners in the Seattle area?

    Thank you in advance!

    Perhaps this is something you should have done prior to applying to the NP program? How do you even know that's what you want to do if you haven't shadowed an NP yet? Your best bet is to call up local clinics or hospitals, tell them your situation, and see if there's an opportunity for you to volunteer. You won't find much help here in that regard

    Join your state NP association as a student member. Attend events. Network. You will have more shadowing experience opportunity then you can use.
