Internship experiences are an essential component of your education. An internship provides you with a chance to learn new skills, network with professionals in your field, apply coursework to a real-world work situation, and explore career options. While many factors that impact success in the job search, internship experience will typically make you a more competitive candidate.

Nursing internships are not taken for credit and are not facilitated through the career services office. Nursing students can, however, participate in a for-credit internship experience in areas outside of nursing (for example, in your minor field of study).
Junior nursing students looking for a nursing internship should plan on attending the Nursing Career Fair held every year in early November. A number of regional facilities hosting nursing internships attend that event to share information about their internship opportunities and application procedures.
