“The staff in CVU is extremely lively and energetic, and everyone was so willing to help me learn. It was really cool to have the opportunity to watch and open heart surgery. I didn’t think I would be interested in critical care, and after my experience in CVU, I realized that I really, really like it. I am going to miss everyone in the department so much.” - Leah, 2015 CVU intern
"During my internship in IMC I learned that night shifts are actually really busy. I gained a lot of technical skills. For instance, I have become very efficient at putting IV’s in patients. I also learned a lot that nursing school has not taught me, such as how to communicate with doctors and how to do medical requisitions.” – Bradley, 2015 IMC intern
"The 6400 department has a great crew, and they were great to work with. The internship was an awesome experience." - Kaylie, 2015 6400 intern
