Career Development

Career Resources

One challenge of searching for a job is showcasing your individuality — who you are and what you offer that sets you apart from other nursing students. When you take time to reflect on your unique perspective, searching for a job becomes easier. We’ve compiled these resources to help you maximize your results:

As you consider what differentiates you, you’ll be better prepared to communicate your unique perspective on the world and the nursing profession each step of the way.

The Out-of-Hospital Nurse Residency is a 12-month program designed to promote nursing careers in non-hospital settings for Rutgers School of Nursing graduates. This program is supported by a grant from the Helene Fuld Health Trust. There is no charge to participate.
» Community Healthcare Network’s Nurse Practitioner Fellowship offers two tracks: a primary care fellowship for family nurse practitioners and a psychiatric community health fellowship for psychiatric nurse practitioners.

» Emerging from the legacy Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars Program, the National Clinician Scholars Program (NCSP) is a two-year research training fellowship educating nurses and physicians to serve as leaders, researchers, and agents of change in health care, community health, and public policy. This interprofessional training allows Scholars to engage in team-based approaches and learn to innovate together to help shape the future of health and health care.
Externships offer nursing students the opportunity to gain practical experience prior to graduation. Though you may find it challenging to find an externship opportunity locally, consider a summer externship outside of the region — it is well worth it. As there are a limited number of externships, they are competitive, and the application process for many begins early. Start your search in the fall, as some have deadlines as early as November.
