School Affiliates:

Internships requirements connected to a degree program can only be fulfilled by Meridian when there is an affiliate agreement in place.  We have affiliate agreements for the following schools:
  • Florida Gateway College
  • Florida International University
  • Florida State University – College of Nursing
  • Hodges University
  • Rutgers University
  • Seton Hall
  • University of Central Florida
  • University of Florida – College of Nursing
  • University of Iowa
If your school is not listed above, you will be able to write in your school on the application.  In such a case, we will need more time to create an affiliate agreement with your school.


All interns at Meridian are subject to mandatory background screening. Please allow a minimum of 8 weeks for processing.  As noted above, more time is required when we must create a new affiliate agreement with a given school. Due to the high volume of requests received for internships, this is a competitive process and submitting an application is not a guarantee for placement.


Having read all of the above, you may apply for an internship by filling out the following form.
