Advice

Always be open to new experiences and really push yourself to learn as much as you can from everyone on your team.

Nurse Extern

May - August 2019 • Columbus, OH

What I liked

Being able to shadow a nurse to learn about what a typical day for a nurse is, and taking care of the sweet babies!

What I wish was different

Towards the end, if/when they offer you a PCA role, let you shadow a PCA for a day or two so you understand your role

Advice

The best experience ever, I would recommend it to any nursing major

Research intern

May - August 2019 • Columbus, OH

What I liked

I enjoyed working with all kinds of people who were all working together towards a common goal in our research. I also was able to get real-world experience with many of the concepts that I learned in my classes at Trinity.

What I wish was different

I do not wish anything was different.

Advice

I had to apply to many different positions and got rejected from a lot of them all in order to work somewhere outside of Trinity, however, it always helps to be a self-advocate.

Patient Care Assistant

May - August 2019 • Columbus, OH

What I liked

Was an amazing way to get a pediatric care experience. The hospital was incredibly efficient and the staff went above and beyond to make sure all of the externs were exposed to a lot.

What I wish was different

I wish that we could have done more nursing skills during the externship but I do know that the pediatric population is vulnerable so there are limits based upon credentials.

Advice

Make sure that you take any and every opportunity to learn something new. There will be so many nurses and other health care professionals that are eager to teach so make sure to ask lots of questions and don't be afraid to make yourself known so that you can get the most out of an experience.

June - August 2019 • Columbus, OH

What I liked

I liked the independence I got when working on my project.

What I wish was different

I wish I would’ve gotten to do more coding or worked on a team.

If you want an experience where you don’t get much guidance and you work alone, this is perfect!
