Former Student Nurse Extern at Hackensack Meridian Health
almost 2 years ago
My major (nursing) most definitely prepared me for my job as a student nurse extern at Hackensack Meridian Health! The nursing content within the program involves great emphasis on patho physiology and pharmacology - all of which were essential to understanding the underlying conditions/diagnoses of my patients. Clinical skills also prepared me, as [our professors] also included the important of evidence based practice, and how it shapes why we do things the way we do. Most importantly, however; the content within the nursing program centers around the importance of the patient themselves, and role of the nurse to not only aid in bettering an individual's health, but their emotional well being too!
