The Scottish Rite Hospital Summer Nurse Extern Program offers a paid opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a pediatric setting while learning performance expectations of an entry-level staff nurse. Externs get the chance to attend educational seminars, in-services and join patients at one of the hospital’s specialized summer camps. Continued work opportunities in PRN Nurse Tech positions are also available. The program requires a 12 week commitment (May 18* – August 7).
*Final exams are scheduled into the week of May 18th, so it is possible you may have an exam(s) during the first week of this extern program. You must be available to start on May 18th, there are no exceptions, so I advise you check the syllabus for each of your classes prior to applying for the program.
Application submissions will be accepted through February 7. Interviews will be held the week of February 24. Applicants must be currently enrolled in an accredited school of nursing and returning as a Senior Nursing Student in the Fall of 2020, 3.00 GPA in nursing core courses and one clinical rotation by program start date. Pediatric rotation completion preferred. Completed application is required for program consideration.
