Job ID: 1800004E
Status: Full-Time
Regular/Temporary: Temporary
Shift: Rotating
Location: , Pittsburgh PA


Are you a current nursing student and interested in seeing what being a nurse is really like? We are seeking nursing students interested for both the Home Health and Senior Community areas for Summer 2018. The SNI for the Home Health area will provide patient care directly in the patient's home and have an opportunity to see a variety of cases. The SNI for the Senior Communities area will have an opportunity for a rewarding experience providing high quality care to the residents at our Seneca Place location.

UPMC’s Student Nurse Internship (SNI) program is a 10-week paid summer internship; this year the program begins in mid-May and ends on July 27. SNIs have an opportunity to work directly with a trained preceptor… one on one! In addition to providing direct patient care, supplementary educational sessions provide the opportunity for the student nurse intern to build relationships and learn about their profession. SNIs can work up to 40 hours per week and follow the schedule of their preceptor.

Note that attendance to the orientation of the program is mandatory; this year’s orientation will be held May 23-24. Additionally, hired SNIs agree to complete an essay about their experience, a post-program evaluation survey, and make every effort to attend mid-summer and end of summer events. For internal candidates, please note that this is a temporary position and transferring into a temporary position may affect your current employment benefits.
