Community Health Network offers numerous educational opportunities for current nurses—including internships, institutes and certification review courses—and nursing student opportunities such as observation/shadowing, the student extern program and clinical experiences through affiliating schools of nursing.
Nursing observation experience
An observation experience, or "shadowing," allows you to observe nurses in their work setting. This experience is usually fewer than four hours in length and you will not be allowed to participate in any "hands on" experience.
Medical Assistant Fellowship Program
The Medical Assistant Fellowship Program is an advanced externship program for selected applicants. It will provide 250 hours of extensive training during a period of eight to 10 weeks. This specialized program is designed to strengthen clinical and educational preparation as well as open the door to employment opportunities. Upon successful completion of the fellowship program, all students will be considered for open positions at Community Health Network, taking into consideration preferences for location, specialty and hours.
Community Health Network offers educational opportunities to our affiliated providers as well as the general public. By offering both initial training and continuing education, Community Health Network helps affiliated providers fulfill all requirements set forth by the Indiana EMS Commission and National DOT standards.
The therapy observation experience allows you to observe a physical therapist, occupational therapist or speech language pathologist in his or her work setting.
