Trinitas launches residency programs for nurses

Trinitas Regional Medical Center, Elizabeth, N.J., has introduced two residency programs for novice nurses to acquaint them with emergency and med/surg nursing through a 12-week program.
“Such programs represent a trend among hospitals across the country to attract new nurses who are interested in refining their skills and transitioning into professional practice,” Denise Loneker, RN, nurse manager of the Trinitas ED, said in a news release. “Another beauty of the program is that it’s both stimulating and challenging in a safe, non-threatening environment.”
Mary McTigue, RNC, MA, CENP, vice president, patient care services and CNO at Trinitas said the program benefits both the residents and the hospitals that ultimately hire them.
“This group of RN residents has recognized that nursing jobs are scarce, especially for new graduates,” she said in the release. “By participating in the residency program, they are propelling themselves forward in their careers, their education and their opportunities to advance in or gain employment in a rewarding profession.”
One recent program participant, according to the release, is a nurse who had worked in a correctional facility and always dreamed of being an ED nurse.
The program is limited to five residents in each cohort. The release said 30 to 40 nurses are expected to take part in the program this year.
