RIH/Hasbro Critical Care Internships:

  1. 0
    I was just wondering if anyone has any information about the Critical Care Internships offered for new grads at Rhode Island Hospital and Hasbro Children's?

    First priority is given to students who work there, do any external applicants ever get accepted?

    Do they really wait until May to make decisions?

    Anyone take part?

    Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    Hey, I'm Chris. I'm a RIC nursing student and a CNA at RIH. I'm not in the critical care internship at RIH but I know some people who have been or are currently. I will say that its pretty competetive overall and VERY difficult to get a spot if you don't work for Lifespan. If your a nursing student I would suggest that you become a CNA or SNA for Lifespan and then apply for the spot (it will help you get your foot in the door.) But I have found that many nursing students don't like doing CNA/SNA work, so they won't often apply for those positions. Its up to you what you decide but those are my suggestions. Good luck!

    Well, I graduate in May, so it's too late there.

    Another question.. do they only hire one person for each specialty? (I'm assuming so, but just curious.)

    I'm confused by what you mean when you say that. You mean one critical care intern for each department? They have multiple graduate nurses in each department, some will have more then others. Good luck with your application but try not to get down if you don't get accepted, its really hard to get into.

    Yes, that's what I meant. Like, one new grad for Coronary Care Unit, one for Trauma Intensive Care, etc.

    Thanks for the info.

    Well I work as a CNA at Hasbro and the new nurses are hired as per diem. They can get cancelled and floated to any part of the hospital. I believe they are only guaranteed 8 hours a week. Don't quote me on that though. We did just go through a re-organization throughout the whole hospital so I don't know if they will be taking on more new grads or not. It's worth looking into in any case.
