Former Student Nurse Extern/PCT at CentraState Healthcare System
over 1 year ago
A day in the life during the externship is that you are following a nurse for the day and shadowing. You are allowed to provide basic care like vital signs, but you cannot do anything nursing related. You just observe. If your manager wants you to stay on as a PCT, they start training you to do blood sugars, EKGs and other things. As an extern you also go to seminars once a week. They are really informative and it’s a small group so they are interactive as well.
