The graduate internship waiver program will be phased out between Fall 2014 and Summer 2017. The phase-out plan allows students who began or will begin their programs prior to Summer 2013 to be eligible for the waiver for all hours in which they are enrolled through Summer 2017. Students admitted to a program in Summer 2013 or later will be eligible to receive the waiver for up to 9 hours of internship hours through Summer 2017. After Summer 2017, the internship waiver program will cease to exist.
Those who are qualified to receive internship waivers, should complete the form posted on this part of the website and submit it to the nursing program office for validation well in advance of the start of each semester. After the program signs off on the form, it will be forwarded to the Recruitment Office as noted on the form.
