The Graduate Nurse Residency Program consists of 14 weeks of preceptor and didactic training in a medical/surgical unit, followed by placement to permanent assignments in medical/surgical nursing thereafter. As a member of the Program, the new Graduate Nurse will complete two weeks of general patient care, computer charting/documentation orientation, and residency skills training sessions, and then will begin 12 weeks of clinical experience. The new Graduate Nurse will work the same schedule as their Preceptor, with efforts made to accommodate their desired shift as much as possible. The didactic portion of the program consists of eight 8-hour monthly continuing education sessions. The first three sessions are given during the second week of orientation prior to commencing clinical placement. The Graduate Nurse will be eligible to apply for transfer to specialty internships or other divisions after completion of the residency program and one year of experience in their residency unit thereafter.
