Memorial Health System places a tremendous value upon education as a vital, lifelong process. This philosophy keeps our teams informed of the latest advancements, and keeps our patients on track to the best possible outcomes. Whether you’re a nursing student, a recent nursing graduate, or a high school student with an interest in the field of medicine, you’re likely to find a program, scholarship, grant, or workshop that benefits your career—and our pipeline of top talent.
Our summer nursing internship program is an exceptional opportunity to learn, be paid for your work, and explore the various facets of your chosen field from seasoned veterans. Providing a glimpse of real life as a nurse, this eight-week program provides the opportunity to take your first step toward a career with Memorial Health System.
Open to students during the summer before their senior year of nursing school, the summer nursing internship program will broaden your understanding of the qualities that make a great nurse. Paired with a staff nurse who will help you learn to apply your education to the real world of professional nursing, you’ll gain invaluable communication skills, learn to properly assess and evaluate patients, enhance your critical-thinking skills, and learn to delegate duties and supervise a nursing staff.
At the end of the program, you may have the opportunity to design your own capstone experience: a project of your choosing that is designed to contribute to the unit where you learned and developed new skills. Possibilities include designing an educational poster, contributing an idea for the process improvement of the unit, serving as an inspirational ambassador to our Teens Experiencing Nursing Summer Camp, or another initiative.
Upon successful completion of Memorial’s Summer Student Nurse Internship, you will be considered for an available patient care technician position during nursing school. Successful summer nurse interns can also apply for available RN positions upon graduation; in fact, 75 percent of former student nurse interns have been hired as an RN at Memorial!
The application for our 2017 internship has closed. Applications for 2018 will open in September.
