Nursing Rotations

CHOC Hospital in Orange and CHOC at Mission Hospital are designated pediatric healthcare training facilities to multiple academic institutions in California.  CHOC is a part of the OCLB Consortium and most of our rotations are approved through the consortium.  Please contact your academic institution to see if they are granted clinical nursing rotations at CHOC.

Nursing Internships

Clinical/Non-Clinical Internships/Preceptorships

Health vaccines

CHOC’s goal is to provide high quality educational experiences for students. We support over 80 regional schools and place over one thousand students each year.  Spaces for these programs are limited and selection of the students is coordinated through advisors/instructors at the listed schools. Please reach out to your school instructor/advisor regarding one of these opportunities.

Observation/Shadow Program

Due to the complexity and severity of illness and injuries sustained by the children we treat, CHOC does not offer observations/shadowing opportunities with the exception of certain students/professionals who’s education requirements are to observe/shadow a physician. For more information regarding that program, please contact
