Summer Student Nurse Externship Program

2015 MS Summer Student Nurse Externship Program

The MHA Organization for Nurse Executives and the MS Council of Deans & Directors of Schools of Nursing jointly sponsor the Summer Student Nurse Externship Program  (Externship Program). The Externship Program is designed to:

  • provide students in nursing with an opportunity to enhance previously learned skills under the supervision of experienced registered nurses in the healthcare setting;
  • assist students of nursing to experience acceptance in a work situation appropriate to their potential as future registered nurses;
  • prepare students to assume responsibilities of full-time employees with respect to performance requirements, policies, and procedures of a health care agency; and
  • encourage retention of nursing graduates through provision of supplemental practice experience within the workplace.

The Externship Program is offered cooperatively between local hospitals and area schools of nursing throughout the state.

The 2015 MS Summer Student Nurse Externship Program application process is closed.

The approved listings of facilities and schools of nursing are posted in the 2015 DOCUMENTS IN THIS SECTION.
