Value of internships

Many internship applications are due at the end of December. If you are wondering about the value of an internship, watch this video highlighting nursing program graduate, Michael Berry.



Many organizations offer internships and residency programs. Eligibility rules and selection criteria are developed by the organization. The list below is not meant to be comprehensive or exhaustive. In addition, the College of Nursing and Health Sciences is not endorsing these internships or residency programs. We are sharing these opportunities as we become aware of them.
