Nurse Internship Program

Midland Memorial Hospital's Nurse Internship Program will help you build the foundation for your professional nursing journey. Through Internship experiences, you will be given an opportunity to gain comfort in the acute care practice environment. The program is designed to provide you with a flexible schedule as you balance nursing school, work, and your personal life. 

Simulation-based learning experiences enhance your knowledge and skills. Participation in these activities will prepare you for a successful transition to practice through our ANCC Accredited Nurse Residency Program. During the Internship, you will have an opportunity to loop through all clinicalnurse interns areas. Nurse Interns will have an opportunity to participate in a fun and innovative unit-selection process before beginning the last semester of the nursing program.

Who is eligible for the Nurse Internship Program?

Students that have been accepted into an accredited nursing program are eligible to apply for the Internship. Ideally, candidates begin the Internship as they enter the nursing program. We do accept candidates in all semesters of the program, though most benefit is gained when joining in the first semester. 

What is the Schedule? 

The Internship has flexible hours to accommodate your busy nursing school schedule! Interns have self-scheduling and are required to work a minimum of 8 hours per week. These hours can be completed all at once or in two 4-hour increments. In the traditional Internship path, simulation days will be completed on pre-scheduled days that are planned around the school calendar. 

Can I go to any Unit?

Nurse Interns are provided a roadmap that includes rotations throughout the hospital. As you progress through the Internship, your focus will narrow to the units you are likely to work as a Registered Nurse upon graduation. 

What is the deadline to Apply?

We do not have a deadline to apply, though we encourage you to apply as early as possible. Most Interns that wait to begin in later semesters voice they wish they had begun in their first semester.
