Department of Nursing


Students apply what they've learned in volunteer and internship settings.  Internships offer valuable experience and resume building opportunities.


Students must be accepted for an internship by a healthcare agency to take Nursing 444, the summer internship course. Twin Cities healthcare agencies have standardized their application dates. Students who have completed two semesters of nursing major coursework are eligible for internships.

The internships are approximately 8-10 weeks. Students work between 30-40 hours a week on the same shift as their mentor, including nights and weekends. Internships are paid positions.
