“I was ablet o get hands-on nursing experience in this role! I was able to follow a nurse at the beginning and by the end of my time there, I was able to have my own patient load that I was assessing and checking in on with the nurse helping give meds. I felt as though it prepared me for the work environment. The nurses were so kind and helpful.”
