Careers in Nursing

At Pima Medical Institute, most programs allow students to work in their field through clinical externships—a chance to be mentored by full-time professionals and interface with real patients.
In addition to real-world experience, clinical externships offer students resume-worthy opportunities, letters of recommendation from supervisors, and sometimes job placement directly after graduation.

Success Is Within Reach
We are truly invested in making sure our students succeed.
“I was in my position for only three weeks when COVID-19 hit. It’s hard to be prepared for a pandemic, but I felt qualified to care for COVID-19 patients. It’s a tough time to be a healthcare worker right now. But, even though we are weary and tired, we also feel fulfilled. I would recommend Pima Medical’s Nursing program. I never imagined one year after graduating, I would be able to buy my own house. I have security and a career I love.”
