Internship Program

Since its inception in 2005, the internship program has provided invaluable opportunities to our students. Thanks to the generosity of parent and alumnae hosts, our girls have had the opportunity to hold summer internships in some of the premier media companies, cultural organizations, laboratories, non-profit organizations, and businesses in the city.

Nightingale is committed to making an internship possible for every interested student, and more than 90% of the rising senior class participates in the program each year. Each girl learns to advocate for herself by creating a resume and cover letter, and honing her interview skills; in the process, she learns to evaluate the qualities that make her unique. The relationships students form with Nightingale alumnae, parents, and friends of the school provide support and encouragement as they step outside their comfort zones and embrace new experiences.

The internship program allows our students to:

  • Explore a variety of career fields prior to the college years, when internships are largely pre-professionalized and opportunities are fewer. 
  • Establish a relationship with a Nightingale alumna, parent or friend, who identify and host internship opportunities, and who have a vested interest in fostering students’ growth.
  • Safely expand their comfort zone in a controlled and supportive environment.
  • Learn how to advocate for themselves, through a formalized program of resume, cover letter, and interview preparation. 

In addition, the Independent Science Research Program at Nightingale provides students of demonstrated achievement, maturity, and interest the opportunity to do both advanced study and research. Younger students attend summer programs for exposure to scientific topics and techniques. Older students may participate in independent, cutting-edge research in laboratories throughout New York City. Throughout the year, students in the Independent Science Research Program meet to share and develop their skills and knowledge.
