Student Nurse Externship

Nursing students work with our professional nurses in two different clinical rotations. Opportunities to observe and perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and assist a Registered Nurse with advanced procedures are enhancements to a student’s own clinical experiences.

A Nursing Educator is available to mentor Student Nurse Externs and orientation to Lancaster General Health is provided. In addition, formal education opportunities and interactive sessions introduce a variety of topics essential to fulfillment of the Nurse Externship role.
