Atrium Health Navicent Beverly Knight Olson Children's Hospital

Nurse Externs
The Nurse Extern Program in the Children's Hosptial is invaluable to both our unit and the nursing students who are externs. The unit benefits from having students who are eager to work and learn. The students benefit from getting hands on experience - working with experienced pediatric nurses.

The externs on the General Pediatrics Unit go through not only a hospital orientation, but also a unit specific orientation with the leadership team. Once they complete orientation, they work one on one with our pediatric nurses. Flexible scheduling with both day and night shifts available allows externs to be able to work while placing school first.

The extern program is a wonderful recruitment tool. Many of our exterrns have found thier "niche" in the Children's Hospital and have been hired as nurses after graduation. We are very proud to have a wonderful extern program with excited and entergetic students.
