Nurse Externship

Johns Hopkins Bayview partners with local educational institutions to offer nurse externships, designed to give nursing students short, practical experiences in care delivery on our campus. Learn more here.

Surrounded by experienced and caring staff and guided by a personal RN mentor, students achieve the level of excellence that is the Hopkins standard.
