I have a quick question and hopefully someone could help. I recently landed an internship at meadowlands hospital that starts up in may. It is an unpaid OR internship that is for 6 months and it is 8 hours a day Monday through Friday. I was wondering if most internships are not paid especially in a hospital that has a union. I'm pretty new to nursing having graduated in May of 2010, so I am not really sure if that is something that is common with an internship. Also I was wondering if as an intern, could the hospital contractually obligate the intern to work at the hospital for one year? Thank you for any and all help.
