Nursing Internships & Externships


Carroll Hospital offers externships to qualified nursing students actively enrolled in an accredited program. Students must first serve an externship before advancing to an internship, which is available to senior level nursing students within six months of graduation.


The purpose of an externship is to provide beginner to mid-level students with valuable hands-on experience that will allow them to practice their current skills, as well as learn more advanced skills. Students will be exposed to several different clinical settings, rotating from unit to unit based on need. The externship is a stepping stone to a higher-level internship that may be applied for during the last six months of nursing school.


To apply for an externship, students must:

  1. Have successfully completed Fundamentals of Nursing
  2. Be a Maryland Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)

Students must also be available to:

  1. Attend a four-day hospital orientation
  2. Work year-round:
    - 16 hours per month while in school
    - Full time during school breaks

Externships Include

  • Hands on learning opportunities
  • Exposure to a variety of clinical settings
  • Additional clinical training

Internships are available only to senior-level nursing students within six months of graduation. Our nursing internship is the perfect opportunity to orient to the RN role while finishing nursing school. Internships are dedicated to a specific unit within the hospital. We offer nursing internships to current Carroll Hospital employees who are qualified nursing students actively enrolled in an accredited program.
