In an internships, the employer is responsible for providing a full-time, full-day, two-week internship to a student enrolled in a registered or licensed nursing program.
In a registered internship, the company will provide the internship to one or more students.
In an internship, an employer may also offer a paid or non-paid internship, depending on the company’s hiring requirements.
The internship is typically scheduled over a two or three-week period.
The duration of an internship varies from program to program.
For example, a summer internship at the University of Michigan can last anywhere from three to seven weeks.
If the program you are applying to is one that does not require a specific length of time to complete, the internship is usually shorter.
Nursings in other occupations are not limited to internships.
Some jobs in other fields, such as law enforcement, medical services, and social work, are not restricted to internship requirements.
You may apply for a registered, licensed, or unpaid internship at your own discretion.
You do not need to have a nursing license to apply for an internship or to become licensed.
However, if you are an undergraduate or graduate student or have completed a registered degree in nursing, you must obtain a nursing education credential before applying for a job.
