Poster: • Describe the impact of a student nurse internship program on role perception and self-confidence. • Describe the benefits of an academic and provider partnered student nurse internship program. Partnerships between schools of nursing and hospital-based staff development departments across the United States began offering nursing courses that paired a student with a nursing preceptor during the last year of the nursing program to help students develop clinical skills. By developing a collaborative approach between nursing education and professional practice, key elements have been identified that foster a positive work environment, and a smoother, less stressful transition from student to practitioner (Olsen et al., 2001). The poster highlights the descriptive correlational design employing a pre-test, post-test methodology to examine the difference between nursing students participating in an eight-week university and hospital-based summer internship program and students who did not participate in the program.
