Ascension Southeast Michigan Summer Nurse Extern Program

Highly qualified nursing students interested in pursuing a professional career at Ascension Southeast Michigan are encouraged to apply for our summer nurse extern program. During this 10 week paid program, externs develop their clinical knowledge, skills and self-confidence while working 1:1 with an RN preceptor on a clinical unit at one of our Ascension Southeast Michigan hospitals. In addition to clinical experience, externs also receive comprehensive orientation, mentoring from experienced educators, attend classroom sessions, network with other externs and complete a unit-based project. The program runs from the end of May through the end of July each year. Information, including dates and application details, is typically available in January/February.
