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, Adult Gerontology, Pediatrics, and Women’s Health).
