We currently offer different education and shadowing experiences for:
High School Students (Ages 16 and older)
The job shadowing program at Arkansas Children's for high school students offers an online training education course and shadowing experience for individuals interested in learning about a specific area in health care. Students will be able to indicate their area of interest on the job shadowing application, and we will do our best to match the student. Students will have the opportunity to experience the hospital setting as well as some of the duties performed by the health care worker for 1-3 days; however, students will not be permitted to take part in direct patient care.
Adults (Ages 18 and over who have completed high school)
For questions on shadowing in various areas, please contact the appropriate department:Nursing Shadow Opportunities:
