“Participating in the Nurse Externship at UW Health was a great experience. It allowed me to practice all of the things I learned in my first year of nursing school. It has boosted my confidence as a future nurse in so many ways and I have built many strong connections with colleagues on my unit. I feel more prepared going into my nursing career and I would recommend this program to everyone!”

“Learning in a classroom and reading textbooks is one way I learned nursing practices, but real experience with patients allowed me to further my knowledge and practical skills. The nurse externship allowed me to feel competent in certain skills I will use throughout the rest of my nursing career. I am excited to see what the future holds for me and the different opportunities that I will have down the road in my nursing career!”
