So, I personally have not had an externship. But prior to nursing school when I was still doing core college courses, I worked in an Emergency Department as a scribe and I absolutely loved it! It was a great way to get your foot in the door at a hospital and get some experience without needing the medical education to be involved with hands on patient care. I would highly suggest looking into positions like this, especially if you are a student who is considering nursing school and wants to spend some time in a hospital before deciding!
