New grad internship in Florida

Published

I will graduate with my BSN in August. Anyone knows of any hospital that offers an internship to which I can apply before I graduate? Or do you think I have to pretty much wait for graduation and getting a state license and then only apply?

There are plenty of hospitals in FL that do what you're asking. Google would be your best bet. There are a few nurses in my new grad internship program who aren't licensed yet. Are you currently in FL? If not, you might consider getting your FL license before...just depends on the hospitals you apply to.

I looked into starn in Tampa and was told I have to graduate and have my license when I apply.

I was just told the same thing this afternoon about the StaRN program in West Florida.

Do they require a BSN or is an ASN ok?

some HCA hospitals (they have the StaRN program) do require BSN's but to the best of my knowledge the Florida HCA hospitals do hire ADN's

Baptist Medical Center in Jacksonville allows you to apply after you have graduated but before being licensed as long as you have your license by the time the program actually starts
