New Graduate Nurse (RN) StaRN Residency Program
Trident Health is a multi-facility health system located in South Carolina's Lowcountry, and is part of the national HCA healthcare network. Trident is comprised of two acute care hospitals - Trident Medical Center and Summerville Medical Center - and Moncks Corner Medical Center, which provides outpatient medical services and 24/7 Emergency Services. Affiliated with Trident are a number of physician practices that provide family medicine, surgical services and specialty medical care. These quality-focused entities work together to bring excellence in medical and wellness services to residents of the Lowcountry. For the third straight year, The Joint Commission recently recognized Trident as one of the nations top hospitals for quality and safety.
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 Trident Health. During the 14-17 week program you will be considered a PRN employee. At completion of the program you will transfer to Trident Health 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.
