What do our interns say about the program?

“In the internship I've been able to utilize more of what I learned in college than I've been able to do in clinicals. This experience surpassed my expectations. The people at Gundersen are helpful and sincere, not just in my unit, but everywhere. I feel very fortunate to have had this opportunity." - Former intern


“This experience of using what I've learned so far in school has allowed me to really understand and see the big picture. I feel more confident in my skills. I would like to thank Gundersen for creating this program. Whenever I had questions, someone was always here for me. We were always supported.” - Former intern


Nurse Intern II students are permitted to administer medications under direct RN supervision.

Uniforms for all nurse interns are white scrub tops and bottoms with mostly white, brown or black shoes which do not detract from the uniform.
