Bachelor of Science in Nursing
The Student Nurse Internship Program was started as a way to allow nursing students to gain the skill set of patient care and communication while allowing us additional educational opportunities. The first 4 weeks of my internship were the orientation period in which 2 weeks we followed a nurse and then the other 2 weeks we followed a nursing assistant. These initial 4 weeks really gave us the opportunity to have educational opportunities by following the nurse, but also allowing us to work with another nursing assistant before working on our own. Through my internship at Washington Regional, I was responsible for taking and documenting vital signs, passing meal trays and recording intake and output, as well as attending to call lights which consisted of ambulating patients and assisting patients with activities of daily living such as toileting, bathing, and dressing.
