USA States that prohibit externship

From this forums post , i came to know that ... California , Texas and Pennsylvania ... these 3 prohibits externship .... My questions are

1. Is there any other states beside these 3 that don't accept externship

2. In my volunteering work in family medicine in a hospital .... I worked in patient care aide ... though I didn't work with doctor but .... I helped out nurses with patient and few times I gave IM injection to the patient and also worked in the lab with medical assistant and they let me draw blood from the patient few times ( my supervisor in the hospital did not know i gave few times IM injections to the pt as they don't allow any such kind of patient contact for IMG volunteer )..... So CAN I PUT THOSE WORK IN MY CV , OR JUST WRITE HELP OUT NURSE AND MED ASST WITH PATIENT ??
I am conscious because TX , PA , Cali .... those states prohibit touch the patient .... ( But i wl apply in NY, NJ , OHIO , Virginia , WEST Virginia , Vermont , Florida , Delaware .... )

Default Where did you do it?

To my knowledge, these are the states that prohibit externships, no others.

Did you give the injections in one of these states?
If answer is Yes, then don't mention it in your CV
If answer is No, then you can mention it in your CV

FSUSTC,

Finding hands-on clinical experiences with universities, hospitals and teaching hospitals on your own may be a very difficult feat, even seemingly impossible. Universities are focused on training their own students, and teaching hospitals are usually affiliated with the medical schools in their area, so they are generally unwilling to work with individuals outside of their network. It may be easier for you to find observerships, but be careful to document them as hands-on clinical experience.
Additionally, the most important aspect of obtaining TRUE hands-on clinical experiences is that they need to be covered by medical liability insurance, and please be very aware of what your roles and responsibilities may be during your experiences. As a foreign doctor, you do not want to put yourself in a predicament where you may potentially be accused of practicing medicine without a license, or were not properly insured while having hands-on patient contact Considering all these major variables, it may not be such a bad idea to work with a specialist.

Now by knowing the limitations of what the state will allow for an IMG in California, our college has been able to use Advanced Medical Assisting-Medical Residency Track as the platform to allow our students to gain the necessary residency relevant hands-on-clinical experience. As you may know by now, two of our students accepted residency positions here in the state of California. These two students credit much of their success to having the ability to conduct their hands-on-clinical externships here in California.

If you have any further questions feel free to ask.
