Summer Student Nurse Externship Program
2014 Summer Student Nurse Externship Program The MHA Organization for Nurse Executives and the MS Council of Deans & Directors of Schools of Nursing jointly sponsor the Summer Student Nurse Externship Program (Externship Program). The Externship Program is designed to:
- provide students in nursing with an opportunity to enhance previously learned skills under the supervision of experienced registered nurses in the healthcare setting;
- assist students of nursing to experience acceptance in a work situation appropriate to their potential as future registered nurses;
- prepare students to assume responsibilities of full-time employees with respect to performance requirements, policies, and procedures of a health care agency; and
- encourage retention of nursing graduates through provision of supplemental practice experience within the workplace.
The Externship Program is offered cooperatively between local hospitals and area schools of nursing throughout the state.
The 2014 Summer Student Nurse Externship Program application process is now open. Please contact Denise Young, chair, 2014 Summer Student Nurse Externship Program for any questions.
The approved facilities and schools of nursing are posted with the program documents.
A seminar is being offered January 24, 2014 at the MHA Conference Center in Madison, MS to provide an overview of the 2014 MS Summer Student Nurse Externship Program. If you are offering your first program or need a refresher session, please plan to attend.
