College Student Programs

Summer HELP Program

College students seeking assistance in making a career choice in the health care field may elect to participate in our Health Experience Learning Program (HELP). The program, which has been offered at Burke since 1976, is designed to provide the student- intern an opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of a patient care delivery system using the team approach.

The goals of HELP are two-fold: to offer the college student exposure to various careers within the health profession through hands on experience and to provide the student with the background to make a realistic career choice. These goals are met by requiring each student to attend a comprehensive nursing attendant orientation, composed of a classroom and clinical learning experience.

Following orientation, each student is assigned to one of six specialty units, including stroke, surgical orthopedic, brain injury, spinal cord injury, cardiac, pulmonary and amputee. Throughout the internship, the student can gain insight into the behavior of patients during illness and the effect a disability has on a family unit. The student can also be involved in health teaching as well as learning, thanks to lectures provided by speakers who are specialists in different health care professions. For information about this program, please call Burke’s Nursing Administration Department at (914) 597-2383.
