Nursing Students

Shadowing Experiences

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.
