RS 01901.760 Student Nurse


Section 210(a)(13) of the Social Security Act;
Regulation No.4—Sec. 404.1029


Beginning 1/1/40, service performed as a student nurse in the employ of a hospital or nurses' training school is not covered if:

  • the student nurse is enrolled and regularly attending classes in a nurses' training school; and

  • the nurses' training school is chartered or approved under State law.

There is no specific exclusion for years before 1940.

The intent of Congress is to exclude student nurse employment:

  • that is part-time;

  • when the only service performed is incidental to the student's training; and

  • when the remuneration for services is nominal.
