Summer Nursing Student Internshipintern

The Summer Nursing Intern Program is an opportunity for nursing students (BSN, BAN), between their junior and senior years, to participate in a learning and work experience to provide the connection between education and real-life practice.

Under the direction of an RN preceptor, interns further their understanding of the practice of professional nursing. Opportunities are available in a variety of areas at Rice including:

  • Adult Health Care (Med-Surg)
  • ICCU / ER
  • Peri-Operative Services (ACD, OR, PACU)
  • Float Pool
  • Women and Children's Care (includes OB)

In addition, students have the opportunity to observe in other areas for several shifts toward the end of the internship.

  • Have at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA;
