Good Idea?


Recommended Posts

I have the opportunity to shadow a nurse in the paediatrics unit at my city hospital. Would American and Canadian schools value that kind of experience? I mean if your going to be a doctor your going to be working with nurses a lot, so it would be a good idea to see what their job is like.

Absolutely! I'd never turn down an opportunity to shadow anyone in a health profession.

 

That being said, shadowing of any sort is an OK EC at best - it doesn't demonstrate any of your skills or abilities, like leadership, compassion, teamwork etc....but it's great for being able to speak to what a dr does, you could even potentially see if a nursing career would be something you would or wouldn't enjoy.

 

I'd say go for it.
