Lexington, Kentucky

Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital offers undergraduates a six-month paid internship position as a Nursing Staff Technician at their clinic in Lexington, KY.

The internship will start either the first or second week of January. The shifts are from 5:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. Rood and Riddle is a 24/7 facility. Interns will be split between the two shifts and rotated to the other shift halfway between their internship. Each intern will be assigned 3.5-4 shifts per week with the option of picking up a 5th if the clinic needs additional help.

The pay is $10,00 an hour and once 40 hours are reached within a week, any hours worked over are paid time and a half. If interns would like to request to stay on through the end of the summer, that can be potentially arranged around the end of April.

There is also an ambulatory internship which provides on-site care to area horse farms. This position provides assistance and support to ambulatory veterinarians. The dates for the ambulatory internship will be different from nursing staff dates.

Please submit a letter of intent, resume with objectives that you would like to accomplish, personal and academic references to Alanna at by November 15th of the year prior to the internship.
