    Gain Experience in Class and on the Floors with our Critical Care & Trauma Nurse Internships.

    The Critical Care and Trauma Nurse Internship at Parkland Health & Hospital System is a twenty-eight (28) month course of study which involves both formal classroom presentations and supervised clinical experience. This program has been approved by an American Association of Critical Care Nurses provider under established guidelines.

    -Nurse interns have the option of enrolling in the graduate program at the University of Texas at Arlington School of Nursing.
    -Six hours of graduate credit are obtained upon successful completion of the program. Lecture content includes pathophysiology, diagnostic work-up, medical management, and nursing care.
    -The clinical experiences assist the nurse intern in applying the information to the care of the patient with multi-system disease or injury.
    -Clinical rotations during the internship include the Medical respiratory ICU, Coronary Care Unit, Surgical Trauma ICU, Neurosurgical ICU, Burn ICU, and Emergency Department.
    -Shift rotations and weekend duty assignments are included throughout the program.

    Try Parkland in Dallas. theis is just ONE of their programs for new grads. I warn you the pay is not the highest and Parkland is not the prettiest hospital around, Still the training is top notch for nurses and ANY Healthcare professional.

    Lehigh Valley Hospital (Level 1 Trauma Center) Allentown, PA. We are the largest trauma center in PA. However, I doubt there are any slots left for the May class. Definitely spots open in step-down however.
