PAID INTERNSHIPS FOR PRE-HEALTH STUDENTS!
Are you a college senior or recent graduate pursuing a career in healthcare? Moon River Senior Care, a highly respected home health agency, has an amazing paid internship program that includes a scholarship to take the 120 hour Nurse Assistant course. The course includes on-line training, 30 hours in our skills lab and a 40 hour clinical placement. Upon completion of the course, interns are prepared to take the Board of Nursing exam to become a CNA (certifed nursing assistant).
Following the training, the intern will be paid to work as a nursing assistant with Moon River Senior Care, providing one-on-one care to older adults in their homes. Applicants must be available to work in the Ashburn/Leesburg area. This is a very rewarding experience. Aides provide personal care assistance and support our clients in enjoying the best possible quality of life. Enjoy hearing about their life experiences and be that special person who provides essential care and brings a smile to their days.
Our company president has trained more than 275 interns who are now working as healthcare professionals. We currently are accepting two interns per month and typically have 20 interns on our home health team. In addition to receiving Nurse Aide training, the interns participate in ongoing trainings and discussions with other interns. We give priority to those who can make a 9-12 month commitment. Interns must be available a minimum of 50 hours a month and many request to work full-time. Some of the interns who have not yet graduated from college are able to get course credit for working with our agency.
Moon River Senior Care seeks interns who meet our high standards. We received the following home care awards for 2019 and 2020: BEST HOME CARE PROVIDER, LEADER OF EXCELLENCE and EMPLOYER OF CHOICE. Our nurse instructors and nurse supervisors are passionate about working with patients and enjoy mentoring future healthcare providers. If you are interested in being considered for the 2020-2021 pre-health internship, please send your resume. We can accept up two new interns each month. Gain insight into what patients and family caregivers experience on a day-to-day basis and advance your career in healthcare. Please send your resume and tell us about your career path if you are interested in spending your senior year or gap year as an intern with Moon River Senior Care.
We take every precaution to keep our interns safe. All students have temperatures taken at the door before entering. Masks and gloves are worn at all times in the lab. When working in home health care, appropriate PPE is provided for each assignment.
