Nurse Graduate Testimonial:
“It is important to me that I understand my nurse graduates strengths and areas we need to work on, in addition to their goals, so that I can support them and develop them and so that they can be successful. I have been with John Randolph for 8 years- everyone knows everyone. It is a very family oriented hospital that gives nurse graduates the opportunity to be seen and to thrive.”
