RN Internship

As one of the nation’s leading teaching hospitals, UAB Medicine has a long history of providing excellent education for nurses.

Our unique, paid, 13-week RN Intern Program allows you to experience three different nursing units, each with its own specialized focus and stimulating environment. With over 30 participating nursing units, if you have not identified your calling within the nursing field, the RN Intern Program is an ideal way for you to see first-hand all that UAB has to offer and determine which area is best for you. Explore your options!

What Can I Expect?
  • You will either select three acute care units, or two acute care units and one Emergency Department, ICU, or Women’s unit, to rotate through for approximately four weeks each. If a non-acute care unit is selected as a part of your rotations, it will be the third rotation.
  • During the rotations, you will learn specific disease processes, navigate the plan of care, and develop the skills needed for providing quality, evidenced-based care to patients.
  • You will meet with the program coordinator to review preceptor feedback after each rotation to assess your progress and provide direction.
  • Upon completion of the RN Intern Program, you will select an available staff nurse position.
