We invite new graduates to apply for our StaRN New Graduate program! This is a 10-14 week program starting in October 2019 featuring didactic and clinical training. It allows new graduates to obtain acute care nursing experience through an intensive residency program, then transition to staff roles within Grand Strand Health. During the 10-14 week program you will be considered a PRN employee. At completion of the program you will transfer to Grand Strand Health and your time in the StaRN Program will count towards your eligibility period for benefits when hired full time as an RN with the hospital.
We offer a generous compensation package including: competitive pay, paid time off, paid family medical leave, 401k, medical, dental, vision, life insurance, student loan assistance, tuition reimbursement, employee stock purchase plan and a huge opportunity for growth.
Program acceptance requires a minimum two (2) year commitment to the facility. Failure to meet this commitment may result in repayment of facility investment.
Tracks offered include Med/Surg and ICU.
