  • 1.  Nursing Informatics Practicum Mentor

    Posted 01-03-2017 21:40


    I am checking in to see if anybody is interested in providing mentorship. I am pursuing a Master's degree in Nursing Informatics and am only left with two practicum courses and a capstone course. Unfortunately, I am having no luck with this. So far, I have investigated five hospitals in Dallas and was unable to proceed either due to hospitals only accepting their own employees or being fully booked. I am willing to start as late as May 2017 and I will have to re-apply to be re-admitted if I wait any longer. Hoping someone could help.

    Thank you,

    Shalet, have you tried the VA?  They will often take students.  I wish I could help but I semi-retired last summer so my work is sporadic and either from home or on the road.

    Ms. Cheryl,

    Thank you for the kind reply. I did not think about VA. I will definitely try there next.
