Geriatric Externship

The HCGNE Summer Externship in Geriatric Nursing seeks to provide UAMS College of Nursing Students an opportunity to do specialized study in preparation for a career in older adult health care.

This externship provides students with the opportunity to explore various types of practice settings such as research, education and leadership.  The student(s) will work in Little Rock at the Donald W. Reynolds Institute on Aging, Thomas and Lyon Longevity Clinic and selected nursing homes. The externs get to work with nationally known nurses and also obtain a broad view of the wonderful work being done by geriatric nurses in our community.

The 8-week full time externship begins after the spring semester ends.  This program offers a stipend of up to $4,000. Summer Extern Program and Role Seminar (undergraduate) is a 2 hour credit course.  The HCGNE is led by nationally recognized geriatric nurse leaders, researchers, clinicians and educators.  This group is excited to share their geriatric experience with young, talented students.
