Internships - No Nurse Should Start the Journey Alone
Launching your nursing career or transitioning into a new nursing role is an exciting time, but it can also be a little frightening. That's why PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center is committed to the Nursing Internship Program. Our three unique internships offer individualized attention in a challenging, yet nurturing, environment. You’re never alone in our internship; our educators and preceptors are with you as a coach, mentor, and resource to enhance your learning experience.
Clinical Practice—Nursing Internship Program
Often times, the new nurse graduate as well as the experienced nurse looking to move into an alternate role, are thrust into clinical care situations with little or no quantifiable background. At PeaceHealth Southwest, the Nurse Internship Program has been established to assist in this transition. Through formal classroom and clinical instruction, the Internship Program focuses not only on strengthening the intern's proficiency, but more importantly on increasing patient safety and patient outcomes.
