Summary of Internship
During your first month at Englewood Hospital no matter what your department is, you have to be in the courtesy department in order to get to know the hospital. Here, you discharge patients, brings specimens to the lab, and if you're lucky you might be able to catch a glimpse of a newborn baby. After a month, you get assigned to your specific department. My department was general nursing and was placed in numerous floors and departments. Sometimes I was at the Mother and Baby Department doing packets for the newly moms and filing papers. Other times I was at a general nursing doing rounds and asking patients if they need any necessities for example: tissues, toothpaste, soap, lotion and etc. This is a very good program for anyone who would like to get a general feel of nursing and an interaction with patients.
