Well, when I interned at Kaiser Permanente over the summer of my junior year of high school, I worked with the nurses in the Gastroenterology Department. Some of my duties included sanitizing the rooms and wheelchairs in the department so that they were ready for the next patient, helping restock supplies, and bringing patients down to the transportation lobby when the nurses were too busy to do themselves, and other numerous tasks. Aside from working in our designated departments, the whole team of interns and supervisor(s) met every Friday to discuss how their experience is like, discuss ways to live a healthy lifestyle, gave presentations to our interns and many more. Working in a hospital helped me gain and hone my teamwork and leadership skills because everything in a hospital must run smoothly, and you get to meet new people and practice your social skills.
I did my internship during high school and it was very fascinating. I interned at both the nursing floor of Oncology and as well as the oncology infusion clinic. Both were very different in the aspect of level of care. The nursing floor required much more attention and more on your feet, I mostly passed trays to my round of patients and checked up every now and then to do a linen change or to clean. As for the Infusion Center, these patients are walking in for as little as 3 mins to a few hours. As an intern I called patients into the back, recorded their weight and height as well as vitals. Then after they were seated and was ready for the nurse, I would chart the vitals. After my time in both units I came out with more knowledge and skills than I came in with.
