Nurse Residency Program
At McLeod Health, we understand the needs of new graduate nurses as they transition from the role of a student nurse to a graduate nurse as well as the needs of more experienced nurses as they integrate into the profession of nursing. To meet those needs, we have developed a nurse residency program using specific tools, experiences, and classes to help you grow and succeed as a McLeod Health nurse.
The McLeod Health Nurse residency program is a 12-month program which builds upon the standard hospital orientation program. The nurse residency program will assist you in transitioning to your nursing career at McLeod Health.
The residency program provides a collaborative learning environment where you can refine your nursing skills and enhance your prioritization, time, and stress management skills. The program will maximize learning by incorporating classroom training, hands-on skills validations and group activities. Also, this program will enable you to establish new personal and professional relationships. The Clinical Nurse Mentor will guide you on your journey throughout the program. The mentor will work collaboratively with nurse managers, supervisors, nurse educators, clinical nurse managers and other nursing colleagues at McLeod to foster and support your professional growth.
