    The requirements for the position are listed on the baptist website. Contact recruitment if you want to know about salary. Baptist is highly competitive with their $$ for students.

    For INTERN: You have to be within one year of graduation to be an intern, and the pay is $15-19 depending on shift.

    I believe to be a "tech" you have to have completed one semester of nursing. Not sure about the pay.. I'm thinking it was 10ish but when I checked into it I was already qualified for intern so that was what I inquired more about.

    A nurse tech is anyone who has been accepted into a nursing program but is over a year from graduation. Some of the nurse techs I work with have not even started clinicals yet, and they are going to be so ahead when they do! When I was a nurse tech 2 years ago it was 10.57 plus shift diffs

    I am starting nursing school at Baptist in September. Of course I have to do the whole year of pre-reqs since they require so many, but would I still be qualified as a nurse tech??

    A friend of mine was a tech at Baptist in Memphis and she was making $15 an hour. She said she had to complete and pass med-surg in order to start working. Well that is UofM's policy. I don't know about the school baptist. She did her intern at the hospital!

    I am currently a tech at Baptist and another memphis area hospital. At baptist I make 11 something and then differentials. I currently get paid a good bit more at the other hospital (St. Francis) but that is only until I finish this next semester. (many of the Techs I work with work at more than one hospital). To be a tech you only have to have finished your fundamentals course. I have only been doing it a week but so far so good. A lot of the nurses really take you under their wings and want to show you everything. And the schedule is great. Good luck. I highly recommend it.

    no, it is not uofm's policy, that baptist's policy, you have to be a year away from graduation and normally that after you've completed adult health in order to be a nurse intern. Nurse tech and nurse intern are totally different, a nurse intern is what i was and base pay was 15 something an hour + shift diff. Nurse tech pay is based on if you are a nurse tech I or nurse tech II. Nurse tech I is when you haven't started clinicals but your major is nursing, nurse tech II is when you're in nursing school and you've started clinicals, I think nurse tech I pays about 9 something and nurse tech II pays about 10 something an hour.
