Programs for College Students

For individuals with a career goal of becoming a nurse anesthetist, a summer internship provides an opportunity for real-world experience in a healthcare graduate educational program. It also provides the chance to observe the operating room and other areas of the hospital. The internship is unpaid, but interns gain valuable experience that can help build a resume for their graduate school application, as well as benefit their career goals.

The internship is best suited for students of nursing or a related major who would like to pursue a career in intensive care with an ultimate goal of becoming a nurse anesthetist. The internship requires basic knowledge of anatomy, physiology and nursing procedures, since interns will maneuver the sterile environment of the operating room. 

Program Notice: Thank you to those that already applied for the summer 2020 internship with the Nurse Anesthesia Program. Due to circumstances surrounding COVID-19 we are no longer taking applications and unfortunately have had to cancel the internship opportunity for summer 2020. The internship opportunity will open up next year for summer 2021.
