I'm not from the Birmingham area, however I am extremely interested in UAB's RN Internship program and wanting to apply to it after graduation. I'm having a difficult time getting information from any of the contacts I can find on UAB's website for the RN Internship. I just have a few questions about deadlines and dates, details about the program, competitiveness, etc. Any suggestions or has anyone participated in it recently? I've tried emailing several contacts. I don't know anyone from that area that would know anything about nursing there.

You would probably have better luck just getting a job on a unit at UAB than into the internship program. From what I heard, it's like more school and you don't necessarily get guaranteed a job on a unit you orientate on, only if they have an opening.

The orientation jobs are posted on their website just like regular RN jobs, just not as many nor as often. Actually I have not heard of a non-UAB grad getting one of those positions.
