The Nebraska Internship Consortium in Professional Psychology (NICPP) comprises six cooperating agencies that together offer a broad range of professional experiences for qualified doctoral students in psychology. The Consortium sites, Beatrice State Developmental Center, Boys Town, Catholic Social Services, Center for Health and Counseling – Creighton University, Munroe-Meyer Institute, and QLI are located in the cities of Lincoln, Omaha, and Beatrice, Nebraska. The internship program is one full year (12 months/2000 hours) in duration.

The NICPP is accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) and is a member of the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers (APPIC). Questions regarding NICPP's accreditation may be addressed to the American Psychological Association, Office of Program Consultation and Accreditation, 750 First St. NE, Washington DC 20002-4242, phone: 202-336-5979.

The Consortium accepts applicants from school, counseling, and clinical psychology doctoral programs, and preference is given to students from accredited programs.

The defining feature of the NICPP as a consortium is our commitment to comprehensive and coordinated experiences. Therefore, interns are admitted to the NICPP and not to an individual agency per se. Primary training experiences, responsibilities, and supervision are coordinated at individual sites, with oversight by the NICPP Board of Supervisors. Interns attend monthly seminars, have access to many other educational events, and are exposed to a wide array of talented supervisors. A look at who's currently in the spotlight conveys the range of accomplishments of the NICPP interns and faculty.

Intern stipends range from $20,000 to $30,000 for a full-time, 12-month training period. Health insurance is available at some agencies. Approximately 25 intern positions are available each year in the Consortium. In 2012 and 2013, 327 students applied to the Consortium, and we currently have 30 interns for the 2013-2014 year. Applications to NICPP are due November 1. Interviews for prospective interns are scheduled for two Fridays in January and are held at a central location in Omaha. Open houses, with opportunities to tour facilities and meet staff members, are held at each site the Thursdays before the interview days.

Students who have completed their internship training with the Consortium have been very successful in obtaining employment in a variety of settings, including hospitals, community mental health centers, universities, and school districts. Occasionally, postdoctoral opportunities are available at some of the sites in the Consortium. Additional information on past interns' employment placements and postdoctoral placements may be obtained from the Consortium office and from the APPIC website.
