Process of Externship for the Nursing Department

As part of the Nursing major, students are strongly encouraged to participate in summer Externships. Under the guidance of Department faculty and staff, information is provided about internships although it is ultimately the student’s responsibility to set one up. Summer externships/internships are usually paid positions with each employer having different criteria for hire.
