Student Nurse Extern

June - September 2017 • Newark, DE

What I liked

Professional environment that offered a great learning experience. Coworkers were eager to help you learn about anything you needed help with.

What I wish was different

Sometimes, I felt as if the workload assigned to you was more than an intern could reasonably handle. The days where the workload was high led to a great deal of stress.

Advice

Do not be afraid to ask questions; no one will judge you for it and you'll learn much more that way.

Perioperative Student Nurse Extern

June 2019 • Newark, DE

What I liked

I have absolutely loved my experience as a perioperative student nurse extern. I feel like this position really taught me more about the perioperative setting, and encouraged me to utilize the skills I learned in nursing school.

What I wish was different

Nothing really! I still work in this position and absolutely enjoy going to work every week!

Advice

I found this experience to be very rewarding and helpful in solidifying my nursing skills. I would encourage everyone who is in nursing school to gain experience in an externship or internship because it helps gain confidence in health care outside of the nursing school clinical setting.
