Since 2007, the Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center Nurse Residency Program has provided the opportunity for newly graduated nurses to participate in a gradual, supportive transition into professional nursing. This program assists the nurse over a 12 month period to develop the clinical skills, professional judgment and critical thinking necessary to become a confident, competent practitioner in the highly complex world of acute care.
Our Residency is a comprehensive year long program divided into three phases (orientation, transition and adaptation) with core content initially focused on combining clinical experiences with a mixture of didactic presentations, computer based training, skills labs, simulated scenarios, self-directed learning modules and peer group discussions. After 12 weeks of orientation, the Nurse Resident attends monthly seminars for the remainder of the first year.
