  • Work directly with a trained preceptor… 1-on-1!  This is an amazing opportunity to build a relationship with your preceptor and see first-hand a day in the life of a nurse at UPMC!
  • Make a difference in the lives of seniors by providing exceptional resident care for patients and their families, while having the opportunity to build lasting relationships in facilities centered around family-like care
  • Diversify your health care experience! 
  • Participate in supplementary educational sessions to continue your learning journey
  • Build your confidence as a future nurse
  • Work up to 40 hours/week (Note:  SNIs follow their preceptor’s schedule.)

It doesn’t end there!  During your internship program, you will have the opportunity to network with UPMC Nursing Leadership, learn about system-wide opportunities, give back to the community, receive mentorship, and most importantly, make an impact on patient care and Life Changing Medicine.  And, of course, have a little bit of fun too!
