Indiana Regional Medical Center recently hosted its 10th annual summer nurses extern program for select senior-level nursing students.
The program provides externs with an opportunity to strengthen and reinforce their knowledge and skills in nursing under the supervision of registered nurse preceptors. It encourages retention among regional nursing education graduates through the concept of paid work-learning practice experience.
The externs were employed by IRMC for 10 weeks.
Those completing the summer program, from front row to back, from left, were Chistine Thompson and Cassandra Powers, Taylor Stiffler and Jeanna Chilenski, Elizabeth Coleman, Rebecca Beer and Lindsey Leonard.
