Nurse Extern Program

Recognizing Exceptional Nursing Students

The Nursing Extern Program is an annual hands-on program for exceptional nursing students that provides a priceless opportunity to learn and work directly with Norton Healthcare, the region's premiere health care system.

This program welcomes nursing students during the summer before your senior (or final) year of school. If selected, you can elect to participate in one of our many hospitals throughout the region in multiple specialty areas. The externship is an intensive seven-week program working in which you will work and engage in hands-on learning with an experienced mentor.

Top area nursing students with good grades, good references, and a desire to be the best will gain the skills and the confidence to deliver quality patient care - and you'll be paid for it!
