We invite new graduates to apply for our StarRN New Graduate program! This is a 14-17 week program starting in February 2018 featuring didactic and clinical training. It allows new graduates to obtain acute care nursing experience through an intensive residency program, then transition to staff roles within Grand Strand Medical Center. During the 14-17 week program you will be considered a PRN employee. At completion of the program you will transfer to Grand Strand Medical Center and your time in the StarRN Program will count towards your eligibility period for benefits when hired full time as an RN with the hospital.
