Nursing Career Exploration

Registered Nurses provide hands-on demonstrations for students in Nursing Career Camp

Students focused on a career in Nursing are invited to attend Nursing Career Exploration, offered the 3rd Wednesday morning each month during the school year. A registered nurse from our Community Health and Wellness Dept. guides a small group of students through the hospital. Tour stops may include Medical, Surgical, ER, Obstetrics, ICU, or other patient care areas.

Because each month's group is limited to 8 students, these events fill quickly. Click HERE for the hospital's on-line Health Events calendar and look at future months to register on-line.

Student Observation Opportunities

Students at Treatment Career Camp rotate through four departments

While you may call it "shadowing" or "internship" or "mentoring" … Union Hospital terms it Student Observation. Many UH Departments welcome student observers. Most students come for a few hours up to a full day, but arrangements may be possible for several days of observation.

Note: These programs are not for students in post-secondary or training programs that require clinical training or extended observation in a hospital as part of the curriculum.
