Student Nurse Intern Program (SNIP)

The Student Nurse Intern Program (SNIP) provides for nursing students to be hired as care assistants to gain insight into the field of nursing. Based on availability, this program supports a smooth transition from nursing student to registered nurse by providing paid hours of mentorship in Emergency, Surgical, Medical-Surgical or Critical Care areas.

A student works alongside another care assistant while under orientation with the goal of completing a list of required competencies. Upon completion of orientation, the intern works alongside an RN and/or under the direct supervision of an RN performing delegatory-type tasks as well as patient-care skilled tasks in different pediatric areas of the hospital.

A SNIP participant will be considered a float and will be flexible with different skills to assist on the unit needed. Applicants must commit to at least one 12-hour shift every two weeks.

Eligibility Criteria includes:

  • Candidate must be a senior at accredited (AACN or CCNE) BSN program
  • Completed at least one clinical rotation within their nursing school curriculum
  • Completion of Pediatric Nursing rotation is preferred
  • The SNIP program selects candidates on a yearly basis.
