The nurse residency program is a year long program. The program will be divided in two. The first half is the training period, specialty will determine the length. You will participate in courseroom work, simulation and preceptorship. After you successfully complete the first part of the program you will begin to work more autonomously, but keep meeting with education once per month and be provided an additional mentor. Our goal is to ensure you are set up to be as successful as you can in your first year.
