The Summer Nursing Intern Program is an opportunity for nursing students (BSN, BAN) between their Junior and Senior years, to participate in a learning and work experience to provide the connection between education and real life practice.
The Nurse Intern functions under the supervision of the Registered Nurse to gain “hands-on” experience in the clinical setting. The primary focus is “educational”, assisting the Nurse Intern to prepare for a position as a graduate nurse. Under the direction of a preceptor, the Nurse Intern will further their understanding of the practice of professional nursing while developing the art of caring and critical thinking skills.
Prior to the starting date of the Intern program, students must be eligible to enter their Senior year in an accredited RN Baccalaureate program; be registered and participating in an Internship Course through a participating Minnesota college or university; and have current Basic Life Support certification from the American Heart Association. Prior experience as a Nursing Assistant or in a healthcare environment is helpful but not required.
Nurse Interns will be scheduled 24-32 hours per week and will work similar hours as their preceptor(s), including rotating shifts and weekends. The program runs from June 1, 2015, through August 7, 2015.
