Student Nurse Internship Program
The Student Nurse Internship (SNI) Program in the northwest suburbs is an intensive, eight-week summer program during which student nurses partner with a nurse preceptor to develop critical-thinking skills, hone technical skills and learn how to prioritize care.
Candidates must be able to commit to an eight-week summer program. At the end of the eight-week program, nurse interns will receive a formal evaluation and may have the option to apply for open positions within the healthcare system.
Student nurse interns will work the day or night shift in 12-hour shifts. They typically work every other weekend, and they do not work holidays. No overtime will be scheduled for or expected of nurse interns.
To be eligible, you must:
- Be enrolled full time in an accredited baccalaureate nursing program
- Be entering your final year of your BSN program with licensure expected by July of the following year
- Have a valid CPR card
