Internship Extensions

The Nevada Revised Statutes allow the Board to renew or extend an Internship only one time for an additional 3 years. Thus, an internship may be a total 6 years. If an intern does not request an extension of the internship, then the internship will terminate at three years after an internship is first approved. An internship that has been extended will terminate at six years after an internship is first approved.
