Student Nurse Extern

June - August 2019 • New York City, NY

What I liked

My experience with Northwell Health as a Student Nurse Extern was amazing. I worked at Zucker Hillside Hospital. Zucker is a psychiatric hospital under the ownership of Northwell Health. I worked under a preceptor for the entire duration of this externship and I learned more than I could have imagined. I formed relationships with all the employees, health care professionals, and patients. I learned something from each and every person I met.

What I wish was different

I honestly had the best experience, I don't think I would change a thing.

Advice

I originally was skeptical about working at a psychiatric hospital because I didn't know if I would want to do psych nursing when i graduated form Villanova. Despite my skepticism, I decided to keep an open mind and try it out. I am so happy I made this decision because it opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities for me after graduation. So my advice would be to try something new and to take advantage of as many opportunities as you are presented with.
