WellSpan Nurse Practitioner/Physician Assistant Clinical Rotations Online Application

Welcome Students!

WellSpan Health is proud to be a teaching institution and is committed to providing quality student experiences by offering Nurse Practitioner (NP) and Physician Assistant (PA) clinical rotations. Because we receive a high volume of requests it is our goal to be as fair and consistent with each application we receive.

To serve you best, please keep in mind – this application is designed strictly for students enrolled in a formal NP or PA program; students enrolled in other programs such as CNM, CNS, CRNA, or in a dual track, etc., should not be submitting this application.

Currently not accepting applications from non-employees in Primary Care NP programs (Family or Adult Gerontology, Women's Health or Primary Care Pediatrics)


  1. Student submits the formal WellSpan Health NP and PA Clinical Rotations online application --- Providers should not be contacted directly. Personal arrangements obtained outside of this process will be invalid
  2. Application is received and reviewed by NP-PA Rotations Team
  3. Application is forwarded to preferred areas of interest as stated on application --- Please be specific with preferred rotation, exact dates, and total number of hours needed
  4. The NP-PA Rotations Team works with preferred sites directly (as stated on application) on applicant's behalf
  5. NP-PA Rotations Team will follow up with student directly regarding outcome of decision --- It normally takes 12 weeks or longer, so we advise you to plan accordingly as we cannot meet school deadlines
  6. Please refer to the grid below as a general guideline when to best submit your application (realizing programs' dates may vary based on quarters vs. semesters, etc.):
When to best submit application: For rotations starting:
January - March Fall semester - August through December
June - August Spring semester - January through May
October - December Summer semester - May through August


  • Only ONE application overall will be accepted regardless of where you are in your educational program --- not one application per semester
  • We will only consider requests for actual clinical rotations and NOT for required courses that involve clinical hours
  • Submission of application does not guarantee clinical rotation. For this, you are encouraged to also seek rotations outside of our organization.
  • Please acknowledge that you have read and understand the WellSpan Commitment to Community Health & Wellness (below)

If any of the steps above have not been followed accordingly your application will be disregarded
