Learn alongside the best.
Memorial Healthcare System in partnership with Vizient® and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) implemented the Nurse Residency Program (NRP) for the purpose of providing an added layer of support to the newly licensed nurse’s orientation and preceptorship experience.
Nurse Residents come together monthly within their first year of employment to learn and network with peers and content experts in the organization as well as develop their critical thinking and clinical decision-making skills with the goal of transitioning from new nurse graduates to competent, safe professional nurses.
To provide a structured, synergistic learning environment that supports the new nurse graduate’s commitment towards professional growth and development.
Nurse Residents will have the drive to continuously develop the knowledge, attitude, and clinical skills essential for lifelong learning.
What We Offer:
- Evidence-based content and resources focused on bridging the gap between academia and professional nursing practice.
- Clinical Nurse Educators focused on guiding new nurse graduates’ transition from direct observation to independent nursing practice in their assigned units.
- Blended learning experiences between clinical practice, classroom discussion and hands-on practice in our high-fidelity simulation center.
- Opportunity to connect with peers and learn from one another’s experiences in a safe environment.
- Team of Coordinators committed to supporting Residents throughout their first year in nursing.
- Easy access to NRP online applications and resources.
- Career Counseling.
- 18.0 contact hours awarded upon completion of the program.
