Beebe Healthcare welcomes 2015 Nurse Externs
Ten nursing students started Beebe Healthcare’s 2015 Nurse Extern Program. These externs are currently enrolled in nursing programs and will work with Beebe Healthcare nurse mentors to enhance their education.
This year’s students are from the Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing at Beebe Healthcare, York College of Pennsylvania, Lynchburg College, University of Charleston, Penn State, and Georgetown University.
The extern program is coordinated by Jennifer Hargreaves, RN, Manager of the Beebe Healthcare Education Institute, an internal organization dedication to promoting continuing education. The externs will work closely with their nurse mentors to gain hands-on knowledge of the hospital work experience. As a member of the healthcare team at Beebe, the externs can explore job opportunities and begin to develop their nursing career portfolio.
“We will have externs in the Emergency Department, Critical Care Unit, Medical-Surgical Units, Orthopaedics, Same Day Surgery, Women’s Health Pavilion, Step-Down Unit, and the Clinical Decision Unit,” said Hargreaves. “We are excited to welcome these students and help them on their journey in the nursing field.”
