10-week internships to provide valuable nursing experiences

Sixteen students at the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing West Nebraska Division in Scottsbluff are participating in the UNMC Summer Nursing Internship Program at Regional West Medical Center in Scottsbluff and Box Butte General Hospital in Alliance.

The spring/summer, 10-week internships provide each senior nursing student with 256 hours of valuable nursing experiences and an opportunity to apply nursing theories and skills as well as make decisions. The facilities provide pay and tuition reimbursement for the students.

The experience exposes students to a great variety of nursing tasks and it benefits the recruiting efforts of the health care organizations.
