We are fully accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and offer a full-range of diagnostic, therapeutic, emergency and surgical services.
We invite new graduates to apply for our StaRN New Graduate program!  This is a 10-16 week program starting in February 2020 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 Colleton Medical Center.  During the 10-16 week program you will be considered a PRN employee.  At completion of the program you will transfer to Colleton Medical Center 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 and life insurance, tuition reimbursement, employee stock purchase plan, student loan assistance, certification pay and a huge opportunity for growth.
Program acceptance requires a minimum two (2) year commitment to the facility.  Failure to meet this may result in repayment of facility investment. 
Departments offered include Med/Surg, ICU and ED.
