What I wish was different

I wish I could have had more time to work on the project beyond the summer

Nurse Extern II

May - July 2017 • Norfolk, VA

Advice

Go into your internship with confidence because you were chosen to be there, but also with humility because you are ultimately there to learn. Take every opportunity to learn something new and do not be afraid to ask questions and reach out for help or assistance.
