Employment will be contingent on satisfactory completion of a background check.

Interviews will be conducted only with those applicants invited by NICPP. Interviews are scheduled for all sites at a central location on two dates in January and NICPP will assign a date and time to each applicant invited to interview. Interviews for prospective 2019-2020 interns will be held on Friday, January 4, and Friday, January 11, 2019. Open houses at the various Consortium site locations will be on the preceding Thursdays, January 3 and January 10, 2019. Creighton University Center for Health and Counseling requires Open House attendance as part of its interview. Attendance at other sites' open house events is strongly recommended, but not required. While it is strongly recommended that applicants invited to interview try to attend one of the Consortium interview days and the open houses, we recognize that this may not be feasible for all applicants. Opportunities for rescheduling on interview days, or for alternate on-site interview dates, are not guaranteed and are made available at the sole discretion of the site-based Training Director. Applicants who are unable to attend the interview days should contact the site-based Training Director(s) and the NICPP Administrative Assistant to discuss whether an alternative interview date can be arranged.

Complete information on the Matching Program is available at This internship site agrees to abide by the APPIC policy that no person at this training facility will solicit, accept, or use any ranking-related information from any intern applicant.
