How do I work in a hospital as a nursing student?
I'm starting nursing school this fall and I currently volunteer at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center (Memphis) Emergency Room. I was talking to some of the nurses that work there as well and they informed me that its possible to get a job as a student nurse at most hospitals! Such programs aren't offered at the hospital I currently work at, so nobody could give me very much information other than it's possible to do. can somebody please tell me how this type of job cqn be acquired? I appreciate all answers, but please only reply if you know what you're talking about! I really dont want to go anywhere asking questions about things I heard on the internet that are unheard of. Thanks!
