Nursing Externships and Residencies

Methodist Health System supports Nursing development

graduatesMethodist Health System has several programs to help nursing students and current RNs enrich their nursing education and experience. We are very accommodating to nurses who wish to return to school in order to further their training and learn new skills.

Nursing Externships

Offered at four of our campuses including Methodist Dallas, Methodist Charlton, Methodist Mansfield, and Methodist Richardson Medical Centers, the Methodist externship program began in 2002. Working closely with local and regional nursing schools, our nursing extern program allows senior-level nursing students to gain hands-on experience in a real hospital setting. Depending on their areas of interest and where they might like to work after graduation, externs may work in:

  • Women’s services
  • Labor and delivery
  • Telemetry
  • Intensive care
  • Surgery
  • Emergency
  • Medical/surgical
  • And other areas.
