We know how difficult it can be to choose a specialty when you don't know what it's like to work in particular fields. That's why we offer a unique Nursing Shadowing program that allows you to choose up to two sessions each series from 16 unique specialties.
Shadowing a nurse at Barnes-Jewish Hospital is a great first step in choosing what specialty you want to work in upon graduation. This opportunity allows you to truly see what happens on a daily basis in a chosen specialty area before the application process begins.
Spending a few hours on a floor often eliminates misconceptions about a particular department and will better help you make an informed decision when considering where to begin your nursing career.

This is the most amazing program! I thought I wanted to go into ob/gyn, but after two sessions, I realised I really loved oncology. Who knew!?
