    Responsibilities and Qualifications

    Mercy’s Nurse Externship is a 9-week PAID summer program designed to be an extension of the nursing student’s formal education process. Students have opportunity to take part in the continuity of patient care and experience the realities of paid employment, staffing patterns and nurse-to-patient ratios. An RN preceptor oversees the student, providing professional clinical guidance during the program. Externs benefit from collaborative exchange, educational opportunities and supplemental learning activities.


    Upon application, your area of preference will be heavily considered but is not guaranteed. Externs are required to follow the schedule of their preceptor, including weekends and holidays, and attend scheduled educational and collaborative sessions. The work requirement is 36 hours/week for 9 weeks. Externs must have successfully completed their second semester of hospital clinicals and be entering senior year.
