    Parkland Summer 2015 Internship

    Hi, yes I did end up getting an offer and accepting a position in the internship. I believe it was the best experience a new ICU nurse can have in the DFW area as far as education, support from staff, and exposure to many types of things you will encounter in the icu. It is not a normal new grad internship. It's hard....some days really hard. There's 100+ question essay tests, final exams, oral exam, and in depth patho that you must know. But the program is run by the best of the best and it is worth it for sure. Anyone lucky enough to get an offer knows that they are truly part of a special group of nurses. Deadline to apply is typically in beginning to mid March and they offer the program once a year starting in August.

    2016 parkland critical care trauma nurse internship

    The interview is very low key and not intimidating at all. They (the program manager/assistant manager) are extremely kind and are some of the smartest nurses I will ever meet. Just be yourself and know the answers you put on your essay and be prepared to elaborate. They have been running this program for over 20 years so they know EXACTLY what they are looking for, and they do NOT just pick the people with the highest GPAs. They are looking to see that you are a match for Parkland and that you are prepared to work really hard. Being enthusiastic, positive, and eager to learn are big pluses. The program is very intense, tests are LONG, and you will be studying outside of class very frequently. They want to know that you are fully aware about this and are prepared to bring your best. They will answer any questions you have about the program, and will fully disclose the details about what you should expect. EVERYONE who interviews with them will tell you they were very nice and basically just have a relaxed conversation with you during the interview. You will not get an experience like this one at any other hospital and am so thankful to have had this experience and proud to say I made it through. Good luck and hope that helps!

    2016 parkland critical care trauma nurse internship

    I am finishing the program now. I interviewed in Mid March and we were notified about job offers around April 9th. Time frames may vary slightly, but just to give ya'll an idea of when to expect to hear from them. There are people from all over the country that apply and come to interview for this program. I believe they usually interview between 50-70 people and will end up picking around 18 people. Hope that helps!

    Parkland Summer 2015 Internship

    This thread was mainly for the Critical Care and Trauma Internship that starts every August. This internship is only for new BSN grads that rotates through all the ICU's and the ER/trauma units. It is an 8 month program. The residencies are completely separate programs. So for example, the ER residency is ONLY for the ER, the SICU residency is ONLY for surgical ICU. These residencies are typically 4-5 months I believe.

    Actually I would say your chances of getting in are quite high. The TWU prerequisites and previous degree are just bonuses to add. But your GPA is perfect and you got a great score on the TEAS. When I started TWU nursing in 2013, an 80% on TEAS was a competitive score. You are a great candidate!
