    Has anyone been through this program at Methodist/El Centro? How does it work?
    I already know I am eligible, my husband works there. I am almost finished with all the pre req's and secondary support courses. How does the program work? How competitive is it with the Methodist employees? How long do you have to commit to work at Methodist? What are the rotations like there? Staff friendly? Pay?
    And can someone please explain the define and explain the difference between an internship and an externship for me? I have received several very DIFFERENT explanations for both.
    Thanks for any and all your help!

    Methodist Hospital of Dallas, Mansfield and Charlton Methodist has a partnership with El Centro College/ Northlake College's ADN Program If you are an employee, volunteer or family member/ spouse of an employee you can apply after you have completed all of your pre-reqs. They pay for everything (tuition, books and fees) as long as you agree to work for them for 30 months after graduation. I am starting my third semester this August, here's the link...

    How competitive was the acceptance process for you? Do you still apply directly to El Centro? Same HESI sections? I'm considering applying for the volunteer program at Dallas and/or Richardson....any advice? Thank you!!

    Hi there


    I am a 30-year old woman who is considering entering the nursing field after 6 years of successful high-level tech sales. I have recently endured a year 1/2-long health battle and it has inspired me to go back to school and become a health care professional. After being cared for by some of the best (and worst! :-P) health care providers around, I believe I can make a difference in this field while learning continuously.

    My sister-in-law recently contracted with a hospital in East Texas--they are paying for her education and she has agreed to work for them for two years following her RN graduation.

    Does anyone know of any similar programs here in the Dallas, TX area? I live in Lewisville and would prefer something close to this area as my husband and I just bought a home here.

    Any information would be much appreciated. It would be very difficult for us to pay for school while surviving on a single income, and I am still paying off loans from my undergrad years. However, the program my sister-in-law found sounds promising and I would love to find out if there is anything in this area.

    Thank you so much for your help, and I look forward to learning from you all through your threads on these forums.
