Teaching hospitals in Dallas area
- 0May 6, '08 by L&DRN03I'm currently an L&D nurse in a teaching hospital and am looking to relocate to the Dallas suburbs early next year. I've worked at both teaching and non-teaching facilities and I definetly prefer the dynamics of a teaching hospital. I understand Parkland and Baylor are teaching hospitals but are there any other ones to consider in the DFW area?

If you are interested in peds, Children's Medical Center Dallas is also a teaching hospital, as well as a level I peds trauma facility.
Parkland is the county hospital and is one of the top "baby-producing" hospitals in the country. A working knowledge of Spanish for L&D would serve you well. Many area OB-GYNs and CNMs did their training at Parkland.
If you're looking at the Ft Worth side of the fence, it would include John Peter Smith (JPS) and Harris Methodist. (I think Harris is teaching...)
Good luck with job hunting & relocation!
- 0Jun 2, '08 by RN536I would look to St. Paul, Baylor and Parkland.
St. Paul- It is a teaching facility but feels like a private institution.
Baylor- Same thing.
Parkland- It is a teaching facility and county facility, will provide the most opportunity to be challenged daily.
Pay is comparable to all. Staffing fluctuates, as in all hospitals. All three facilities can boast about longevity in their staff.
