The internship program is similar to employment by introducing the student to a realistic clinical setting while offering hands-on learning experiences. The student is monitored closely by his or her affiliated school and the nurse preceptor in the areas of professionalism, attitude, and attendance.

Our program includes a detailed schedule with a preceptor assignment based on the student nurse preference of clinical settings.
