Don’t take our word for it – See what some of our past Nursing Interns had to say about the program!
- “The UH Nurse Internship Program gave me a more in-depth experience with my nursing practice. It allowed me to identify my strengths and improve my weaknesses as a nursing student. I was also able to discover where I wanted to work upon graduation and they offered me employment as a NAII once my internship was over! The best part was the fact that we got paid while completing clinical hours!” – Madi Pelyak, Kent State University
- “I would say that I grew faster in my internship than my years in clinical and I have become overwhelmingly more comfortable in my nursing role.” – Autumn Welz, Ursuline College
- “This internship was incredible! It has definitely made me feel so much more prepared for not only senior year but also after graduation. The staff was so supportive of my learning, and I was able to feel confident about so many skills by the end of the summer. I am also staying on as a Nursing Assistant during the school year!” – Hannah Robinson, Francis Payne Bolton School of Nursing

Registered Nurse - New Graduates
At University Hospitals, our extraordinary nurses enable us to advance the science of health and the art of compassion. And in turn, we help our nurses thrive by equipping them with the environment they need to empower, advocate, innovate, and achieve excellence in human caring.
At University Hospitals, we believe that new graduate nurses benefit from actively participating in our customized Nurse Residency Program. As new nurses begin their professional careers with clinical support and mentoring, the Nurse Residency Program provides a transformative learning environment with multiple, rich opportunities to have meaningful peer group discussions.
In their first 12 months of professional nursing practice, nurse residents work towards a successful transition from education to practice, reflecting on their clinical experiences, as well as their professional interactions with patients, families and colleagues. During Nurse Residency Program sessions, the new nurses focus on such topics as the development of communication and leadership skills, clinical competence and confidence, patient outcomes and advocacy, and
promoting professional identity.
The Nurse Residency Program, a formative learning experience, provides an opportunity to network, encourages accessing resources that will promote a patient and family engagement and reinforces the importance of being a member of a respected healthcare team.
