We understand the support needed for a new nurse to be successful.

With this in mind, we offer our New Grad RNs a 12-month Nurse Residency Program that provides monthly education classes and hands-on clinical experiences, designed to ease the transition from student to practicing professional nurse. Our program builds on the knowledge and skills acquired in nursing education programs.

The unit manager reviews all resumes and cover letters for their open positions. Our nurse recruiter will call applicants for a phone interview. You can be hired throughout the year and begin the Nurse Residency Program with the cohort closest to your start date as a New Grad RN. Cohorts begin in March, August, and November.
