Nurse Externship Program

Nurse Externship Program

WellSpan Health supports nursing students’ journeys toward lifelong nursing careers.

WellSpan offers externships for nursing students during the summer before their final semester/year of school. As an extern, you’ll provide direct patient care across specialties, experience multiple units and disciplines, and learn from an engaged nursing team. An externship is a great way for a rising senior to explore career paths and define your goals as you approach graduation.

As a nurse extern in our nine-week paid program, you’ll quickly become a valued and skilled WellSpan team member. We’re committed to supporting your growth as a successful and thriving professional—it’s part of our culture of care. We welcome your passion for nursing and commitment to caring for our communities.
