What hospital is good for internship?



I'm going to be applying to nursing internships soon, and I was wondering if anyone had any advice on the best hospitals to do an internship. I'm also wondering which hospitals are more likely to hire their intern after taking part in their program.

Here are my options:

Alina Hospital System - Abbott, St. Francis, United.


VA Medical Center


Fairview Southdale

I'm tempted to pick the ones that actually pay but I don't want to give up a good opportunity just because of that. Let me know what you think.

And also any advice on getting the internship would be helpful, too!

casi, ASN, RN

Specializes in LTC. Has 3 years experience.

I encourage you to apply to them all and see what pans out. Especially in this economy internships are fierce.

If you get more than one offer I'd then look into how each hospital fits your nursing goals.
