Thank you for your interest in OrthoNebraska! We welcome your interest in exploring a healthcare career.

Our Job Shadowing Program is designed to give you the opportunity to:

  • Observe the daily routines of our extraordinary professionals as they perform their jobs
  • Explore health care career options
  • Increase awareness of the skill sets required
  • Experience our health care culture

You will be paired with a healthcare professional to observe and interact with them as they conduct their daily work. You will not have an opportunity to have hands-on patient care, just observe and ask questions. A job shadow experience is 2-8 hours in length. You may have a maximum of three job shadow experiences in three different areas in one year. If you need documentation of having done a job shadow, bring your form with you on the day of your shadow so that the person you’re shadowing may sign it at the end of your time with them.

After you complete the application, the process is:

  1. You will be redirected to a page with documents to sign and return and a quiz to complete. These must be completed before you can shadow.
  2. A scheduler from the department you are shadowing with will reach out to you to confirm dates/times to shadow.

Available Departments for Shadowing

  • Nursing
  • Physicians
  • Advanced Practice Providers (PA, APRN)
  • Physical or Occupational Therapists

Required Immunizations

Working in a hospital requires healthcare workers to be current on many vaccinations. Immunizations are required for the protection of the health-care worker, as well as for the protection of patients. As you proceed with a career in healthcare, it will be important to keep a file of your immunization records. Schools and health-care employers will require this information. All job shadowing students on our hospital campus will be required to complete paperwork attesting to the current status of the following immunizations:

  • Immunizations Required
  • DPT/TDaP (Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus)
  • Influenza (Flu Shot)
  • Hepatitis B
  • Inactivated Poliovirus (Polio Vaccine)
  • MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)
  • Varicella (Chicken Pox)
  • COVID-19 (STRONGLY preferred)
