Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Saint Luke’s Health System is committed to providing exceptional care for all patients and a safe and healthy atmosphere for our team.
Saint Luke’s recognizes the challenges faced by new graduate nurses as they begin their careers. To address these challenges, we have developed a comprehensive program to help support nurses’ professional growth.
Our Nurse Residency Program is based on the National Council of State Boards of Nursing’s Transition to Practice model. All new graduate BSNs and ADNs hired at Saint Luke’s participate in this program, which helps them to build clinical competency and professional practice behaviors throughout the first year of practice.
As part of this 12-month program, you will be paired with experienced nurses and clinical educators. Your preceptor will work closely with you during the orientation period to help you adjust to your unit. Mentors and facilitators will assist you in your professional development and help you become more involved with Saint Luke’s Health System and its nursing shared governance.
During the 12-month program, you will attend bi-monthly modules facilitated by system clinical educators. Topics of discussion will include:
To be eligible, participants must have graduated from an accredited nursing program and have less than one year of experience as a nurse. Our nurse residency application is now open to nursing students graduating this September – February. Interviews for candidates will take place throughout the fall.
Sign up for job alerts to be notified when the nurse residency application opens. For questions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
