Set Your Resume Apart

ACR offers employees a flexible, individualized opportunity to complete an internship to align with their educational and career goals. Internships give your resume a boost and give another key talking point and experience for graduate school or medical school interviews. In addition, several ACR employees have been able to use their internships at ACR to obtain credit for internship experience at local colleges and universities while also getting paid to work!

The internship program structure allows students or grads to gain internship experience while also gaining patient care, meaningful job experience, and an individualized internship. In addition, ACR Homes interns meet with CEO & founder Jim Nelson multiple times throughout their internship period which is a unique learning opportunity that also results in a letter of recommendation for internship completion.
