Job Shadow Information


NOTICE:  Job Shadowing is closed from Nov-March. You can still apply for job shadowing but will not be accepted until April.

We have provided extensive information to help those individuals who might be interested in Job Shadowing.

Requests for Job Shadowing opportunities at Hamilton Health Care System, Inc. are considered and approved on a case-by-case basis. Every effort will be made to accommodate requests.

However, because of the sensitive nature of health care, ensuring patient safety, infection prevention, quality of care, and patient privacy and confidentiality is our highest priority. Job Shadow Candidates must be Sixteen (16) years of age or older. Emergency Departments, Surgery, Medical Intensive Care Unit and Surgical Intensive Care Units cannot accommodate students under the age of Eighteen (18) unless approved by the Vice President/Chief Nursing Officer and Department Director. There is NO shadowing in the Women’s center (Labor & Delivery, Mother/Baby, NICU) due to it being a safety sensitive area.

Job Shadow opportunities are suspended during peak flu season, November through March annually, and may be subject to cancellation or change at the last minute, due to unforeseen circumstances. At anytime during the shadowing experience, the Shadowing Coordinator, sponsor, or Department retains the right to end the tour immediately without notice.
