New Graduate Nursing Residency Program


From day one, we are dedicated to supporting the careers of our nurses – especially our newest nurses. To help bridge the gap between classroom and career, we created the New Graduate Nursing Residency Program.


Open to graduating nursing students of accredited institutions, this 12-month program allows residents to complete rotations per an individualized learning development plan. These rotations include:

  • Three 12-hour shifts per week
  • One 12-hour experiential learning day per month
  • Two simulation labs

Surrounded by fellow new graduates in an environment that promotes collaboration, growth and development, you’ll make a smooth transition from student to registered nurse. You’ll also gain valuable clinical experience while being supported at every step.
