student nurse internship (rn) program

South Nassau Communities Hospital offers the RN Nursing Student an exciting opportunity. Join us this summer for our annual "Student Nurse Internship Program". This paid program is designed to give RN nursing students valuable knowledge of professionalism in nursing practice, the experience of hands on “nursing excellence” in our Magnet® environment, and best practice in patient care. Not to mention the highest quality training in a nurturing and educational setting.

Course Description
The Student Nurse Intern is a member of the nursing staff who is trained to perform specific tasks under the direction of a Registered Nurse.

This unique eight-week internship gives student nurses the opportunity to practice hands-on patient care in an atmosphere which is defined by intense caring and compassion.

The experience begins with assignment to a unit and a preceptor RN who will provide the Student Nurse Intern with the support and guidance needed to grow professionally.

South Nassau's Student Nurse Internship Program offers a broad scope of hands-on experiences. State-of-the-art equipment and modern patient care units present Student Nurse Interns with a range of learning experiences. Student Nurse Interns will also have the opportunity to collaborate on a nursing research related project.

In addition to direct patient care, additional experiences are arranged for Student Nurse Interns to observe in one or two areas of interest.

Program Qualifications
Qualified applicants must be currently enrolled in an accredited RN program (BSN strongly preferred) and must have completed two (2) semesters of clinical nursing rotation in an acute care setting. This 8 week program is open to Junior nursing students entering their Senior year. A commitment of 37.5 hours per week including weekends is required. Following formal classroom orientation, students are assigned to one unit for 8 weeks of clinical practice working side-by-side with an RN preceptor. The SNI will be required to follow the preceptor's schedule working 12 hour shifts. The students will have the opportunity to rotate through specialty units (i.e. OR/PACU, ER, Endo, E1 and RRT) during their 8 weeks of training. This is a paid internship.

Thank you for your interest in our summer program. Our next program will be held in Spring/Summer 2016. Watch for “apply now” in 1st quarter of 2016.


Best Wishes to the 2015 student nurse interns of South Nassau Communities Hospital's 2015 Student Nurse Internship Program. "The future of nursing... is looking very bright."
