Opportunities for Advanced Practice Students

We provide advanced practice training for the following programs: physician assistants, nurse practitioners and certified nurse midwives. As health care providers, these professionals play a significant role in the delivery of patient care. We are pleased to provide advanced practice students with dynamic, exciting educational experiences.
In order to complete rotations with Samaritan Health Services, you must be enrolled in a program for one of the occupations listed above. It is vital that permission is received from your institution’s academic coordinator of clinical education prior to requesting a rotation. Students must complete a background check and drug screen prior to starting an educational experience.
The online orientation consists of reviewing Samaritan policies and trainings, signing a confidentiality statement and providing immunization records. These records need approval from the Office of Medical Education or Professional Development, depending on your specialty.

If you are a nurse practitioner, midwife or are obtaining your master’s degree in nursing, please contact Professional Development.

If you are a physician assistant, please contact the Office of Medical Education.
We are sensitive to the fact that many of you will need short-term housing options during your time at Samaritan. A list of housing options is available by request for your convenience.
Required steps must be completed at least 30 days before your arrival.
