Nursing students are able to learn more about their chosen career by observing and working with the nurses at Catholic Health hospitals.
If you are a clinical coordinator and need to arrange placement for your students, click here to visit our School Faculty section.
The shadowing work experience is a temporary, unpaid exposure to the workplace in an occupational area of interest to the student. Students witness firsthand the work environment, employability and occupational skills in practice, the value of professional training and potential career options. Job shadowing is designed to increase career awareness, help model student behavior through examples and reinforce the student link between classroom learning and work requirements. Job shadowing is limited in that it allows students to observe only; direct work experience, responsibility and skills are not acquired.
Graduate nursing students who would like to seek placement at a Catholic Health facility are required to make arrangements with a preceptor and complete our placement request form.
You must also review the Student Orientation Documentation Form, and if not an employee of Catholic Health, the Self-learning Packet, prior to signing the Student Orientation Documentation Form. Both forms are available on the required materials page.
Catholic Health is offering a limited number of competitive, paid summer internships for BSN nursing students between their junior and senior year.
The full-time, 8-week summer internship program allows training in specialized areas, such as the emergency room, operating room, intensive care, NICU, pediatrics and telemetry.
The internship will start on Monday June 2, 2014 and will continue through July 26, 2014. Interns will follow their preceptor’s schedule.
All components of applications must be delivered to Daynell Rowell-Stephens, Manager. Applications will be accepted from January 7, 2014 through January 28, 2014.
