Nursing Internships

Antelope Valley Hospital is pleased to announce the creation of a new Student Nurse Intern Program.

This paid internship program will enable students in their final semester of nursing school to have a combined working and learning experience in a rigorous healthcare environment. Interns selected for the program will receive clinical experiences such as:

  • Under close to general supervision, working alongside providers, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to provide support services directly related to patient care
  • Assisting with direct patient care under the supervision of the RN or other medical professionals
  • Collecting patient histories and vital signs, collects and performs routine tests on blood and other specimens, and assists with simple procedures
  • Dressing changes, wound and incisions care
  • Assisting in minor surgical procedures and suture removal
