We are now accepting resumes for fall, spring and summer semesters


Thank you for your interest in a Practicum/Internship experience with the Saint Louis Crisis Nursery!  Our Practicum/Internship program offers opportunities in multiple categories to Associates, Bachelors, and Masters level students to engage and learn about working in a Crisis Intervention based agency focusing on prevention of child abuse and neglect. 

The opportunities that we have are matched to the student's experience, degree, and professional interests so each students experience is uniquely their own. Supervision for these experiences can be provided by both Bachelor’s and Master’s level professionals.  Due to the high volume interest in Practicum/Internship opportunities with limited openings we are selective and competitive in our screening process. 


Beginning the Process


To begin, please prepare to submit:

·         A cover letter explaining why you’d like to complete your experience at the Saint Louis Crisis Nursery,

·         Your resume, and

·    The application


Please submit to Rachel at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 


            Within a week, you’ll be notified if you are approved for further consideration.   If so, you will be invited to participate in a phone screening/interview which allows us to gain additional insight into your educational interests and gives you the opportunity to ask questions about the agency and the experience we offer.


            If selected to move forward, you will have a professional face-to-face interview with your potential field instructor. Factors influencing selection include a review of all submitted documents, interview results, the ability to meet student needs.  We will make every effort to contact each student with a determination within a week of the interview.  


            Once accepted, you will receive an email documenting your provisional placement offer which is contingent upon acceptable and timely completion of requirements and paperwork as listed below:


·         You must complete documents that allow us to check your background with the Family Care Safety Registry and

·         You must undergo fingerprinting (we’ll provide instructions) at your own expense ($43)

·         You must submit a physical on the form we provide, with a physician’s signature. 


The aforementioned must be completed within 2 weeks of the conditional offer to hold your practicum space. 


Once all background results are in, you will receive a welcome email with instructions on how to sign up for orientation.    You may not begin your practicum/internship until you receive the welcome email and complete orientation.
