Student Opportunities

Evangelical Community Hospital is committed to providing the next generation of healthcare providers and support personnel with access to experiences before they enter the workforce. We offer high school internships, post-secondary internships, job shadowing hours, paid internships through Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA), and volunteer experience.

High School Internships

The Hospital offers unpaid internships to high school students interested in healthcare careers, including nursing, who meet the following qualifications:

  • GPA of 88% or above with strong math, science, and communication skills
  • Strong school attendance and punctuality records
  • Two letters of recommendation from faculty/coaches
  • Successful completion of a personal interview


Post-Secondary Internships and Shadowing Hours

Unpaid clinical internships are available for nursing students as well as students enrolled in Physician Assistant (PA) and Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner (CRNP) programs. Shadowing hours are available for students preparing to enroll in PA and CRNP programs. Internship and shadow hours are limited to the availability of providers, specialists, and departments. We cannot guarantee any or all required internship or shadow hours will be granted to applicants. Non-clinical, unpaid internships and job shadowing experiences are also available.
