Carle Nurses: We are Magnet®
Only seven percent of healthcare organizations nationwide can claim Magnet status, the gold standard for nursing programs. Carle is one of them. More than 1,500 nurses practice in a variety of settings, from inpatient hospital to ambulatory to our health plan. Each is supported by transformational leaders who give them autonomy to find solutions, integrate with their care teams and grow their careers. This environment is reflected in our world-class patient care and positive outcomes.
Student Nurse Internship Program
If you are a junior or senior nursing student, we invite you to apply for the Student Nurse Internship Program.
During this eight week program, nursing students will work and learn alongside Carle’s experienced nurses in Med/Surg, Critical Care, Emergency Department or Maternal/Child units. This paid opportunity for additional clinical exposure will help strengthen your nursing skills and understanding of practical application.
Schedule of events:
- Applications will be accepted February 1, 2019 through February 21, 2019.
- Interviews for qualified applicants will be held February 25, 2019 – March 8, 2019.

Carle is a top 50, great place to work
Healthgrades has named Carle one of America’s 50 Best Hospitals and among the Top 1% nationwide for consistant clinical quality. You can see our many awards, accreditations and accolades here
. Additionally, we’ve been named a Great Place to Work®
, something our nurses would say you don’t need an award to know. The clinical world is watching Carle Illinois College of Medicine
, the first engineering-based medical school in the world. And Stephens Family Clinical Research Institute
supports numerous projects, including those started by nurses.
Central Illinois is about way more than farmland
Champaign-Urbana has been defined as a micro-urban community, meaning we have many of the amenities of a much bigger city, with the feel of a smaller town. Almost equidistant to Chicago, St. Louis and Indianapolis for fun weekends away, the area offers excellent schools, a great downtown scene, Big 10 sports and culture including the Krannert Arts Center.
