How I Organize My Shift as a Nurse Extern!

10:35 AM
First of all - what is a nurse extern, you may ask?

At some hospitals, there are opportunities for nursing students to work as a NURSE EXTERN. The role can vary from hospital system, but generally, it is an opportunity to get experience on the floor. The role is that of a patient care tech (PCT) + more (depending on the hospital/unit). Also, it sets your resume apart from the many nursing students breaking into the field with NO experience or it may be your ticket to transitioning into a nurse position upon graduation! It's a wonderful experience and I recommend it to EVERY nursing student (if your schedule permits).



Now --> onto how I personally keep myself organized when it comes to my 12-hour shift on the floor. I work on a Neuro/Telemetry unit at a local hospital and my patient load can range from 6+ so it's critical to start off strong and this report sheet is everything!
