This program allows students to experience the continuity of patient care, experience the realities of full-time employment and experience day-to-day staffing patterns. In addition to being introduced to these areas, you will be asked to participate on the night shift. Your introduction to the realities of nursing will allow you to gather the experience necessary for quality career placement.
An experienced RN Preceptor will provide professional guidance throughout the program, in addition to weekly and other scheduled activities. Each Summer Nurse Tech will be assigned an RN preceptor for the duration of the program. You will be able to gain insight into everyday nurse functions and experience beyond the classroom.
