Program Overview:

Dartmouth-Hitchcock is hosting a summer program for nursing students currently enrolled in an accredited BSN program. To be eligible, students must have completed their sophomore year, and have a current NH LNA license or be eligible to obtain their NH Nurse Assistant license by the beginning of May.

In addition to clinical experience, LNA Nurse Interns will have the unique opportunity to participate in:

  • Professional development and nursing-specific learning activities
  • A leadership mentor program
  • An experiential learning opportunity that will allow you to explore one of three distinct nursing tracks. These tracks include Nursing Leadership, Advance Practice and Nursing Education.

Interns will work in our System Staffing Office which provides a unique experience of floating between different inpatient units.  Interns must be able to commit to working 36 hours per week. Most shifts will be 12 hours in length. Each month, interns are expected to work two nights and two weekend shifts. Shift differential is paid for evening, night, and weekend shifts. Overtime may also be available dependent on the needs of the organization.

DHMC is home to the Norris Cotton Cancer Center, one of only 45 Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the nation; and the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock. Most internships are based in Lebanon at our main campus, but some sites may be available at other locations in our health system.
