Are you a new graduate nurse looking for your first opportunity?  Are you looking for a nurse residency program that invests in YOU, your career, and your future?


We invite new graduates to apply for Memorial Health's StaRN New Graduate program! 


Memorial Health Savannah is a 612-bed hospital located in Savannah, Georgia that serves 35 counties across southeast Georgia and southern South Carolina. We opened our doors in 1955 and have evolved into the most advanced healthcare provider in the region. We are a regional referral center for heart care, cancer care, trauma care, children's care, high-risk pregnancies, and high-risk newborn care. Our hospital includes the region's only Level 1 Trauma Center, the region's only children's hospital, and the Savannah campus of Mercer University School of Medicine.

The 10-16 week program starts February 24, 2020 and features 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 Memorial Health.  During the 10-16 week program you will be considered a PRN employee.  After completion of the program, you will transfer to Memorial 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.
